Default Tri Fire Fan Controller?

Heya.

I have successfully installed 3x unlocked 6950. When I use the Sapphire Trixx software, it doesn't let me have control of all three fans. It only controls the first card's fan.

I was wondering if someone knew of an application that was better suited for trifire. I would really like the ability to manually set fan speed on each card individually and also be able to set a fan profile.

Thanks for your time.

I am pretty sure that msi afterburner will appy the user defined fan speed over all cards present.

MSI AB does not allow you to control each fan separately, I don't believe there is any software out there that allows custom fan profiles for each card in CF.
All the apps I know apply the custom fan profile to all the cards.

There is a setting to apply to all cards in AB.

I believe the comment is that you can only have one profile, not a different one for each card. That said, while I believe you can only have one custom profile, I also believe that you have the option to set each card to either custom profile (auto) or a fixed fan speed which could be different for each card.

sswilson, that is what I was implying, and you are correct, you can have one card using the custom and the other using a manual speed.
I've always wanted to have multiple custom fan profiles, but for whatever reason, this just doesn't seem possible. Or the vendors don't feel like developing this in their apps.

Update: Major problems.

My trifire configuration was working fine, benchmarked almost 11000 3d mark 2011. I then kept getting errors when running trixx / afterburner. Only stable and totally functional fan interface seems to be amd overdrive.
