Not at all.. It was just a useless thread that was answered in the first two posts but you kept bumping it so we're just having some fun.


It's the intertubes.. Don't take stuff personally.
I still don't see how this thread is useless but nevertheless I respect your opinion.

Matt, I tried that but I could get it to work. I am using something else. Thanks anyway.

Okay, that means either the fan doesn't support PWM speed control, or that part of the mobo doesn't. I have about 5 fan plugs on mine, but only 2 can be controlled. If you can't control it in Speedfan, you won't be able to from the BIOS. Time to break out the manual! :)

But the only other alternative is to get a fan controller. This one is single channel:

edit: oh, ok. :)

Using programs to lock your fan speed can be a bit sketchy.

That's how my mate broke the fan on my old ATi card (X800pro), he fixed it at 80% and now the fan is perm maxxed out and can not be turned back down again.

But if you are serious about fan speed and the noise. Get this

or you can try your luck with 3rd party programs. But before you do that, I suggest you try the fan monitoring program in the BIOS before using any other weird programs you find on the net.
