    Asus AI Suite III Question (leave running in background or safe to close?)

    I was wondering, after setting 4-way optimization/ Fan Xpert settings/ etc., do I have to leave the suite open, or can I close it? Like are the settings automatically saved to the BIOS, or is it all controlled by the software and it has to be running in the background? Thanks!
