I run a FX-51 on the SK8N, and YES my CPU fan can and does stop.
(Running Q-Fan in the BIOS)
It is because Q-Fan has four levels:
I find once my CPU heats up to the low setting the fan does kick in and everything is safe.
But if you are running cool-n-quiet also, you CPU will go down to 800mhz, and run VERY cold, cold enough no fan may be needed, but don't worry the fan should turn on if the CPU heats up.
Runs some tests first!
BTW...I wish Cool-n-quiet worked on FX's
