Corsair SP120 Fans with ASUS Maximus v Formula Mobo

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I have just installed these fans onto my radiator and plugged them into the fan headers on the mobo,

The fans are now running at full speed and I cant slow them down,

Is there a way to do this without a fan controller as I like the idea of having them on the board as the BeQuiet Dark Rock Pro 2 fans sped up and slowed down with usage no issues,

The noise of 1,363rpm is getting anoying! rolleyes.gif

Yeah I have tried that, but FanXpert cant change the fans, does not even give me a readout, if can see the speed in the reporting section but nothing to say "here change the speed"

Somone said the SP120's are nor PWM fans?

the fans shouldve came with an inline voltage step down which takes them down to 7v(i think) from 12v.

i have my sp120 and af120 set this way... much more quiet. not dead silent, but tolerable.

Chassis fan headers on MVF are voltage controlled and cpu fan headers are PWM controlled. Haven't tried opt_fan headers yet but if manual is correct then they should also work with PWM control
