Case fans being extremely difficult

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Hello, I just built my first pc and I have run into some problems

my chassis fans are running extremely slow, need a push to sometimes work, and is being displayed as over 30,000 RPM when I try to monitor them through third-party software such as SpeedFan, and when I monitor it through my MOBO it gives me the same insane results

case: Corsair 230T

mobo: asus m5a97 r2.0

Might want to look into this starting with your BIOS, make sure they're plugged in the correct way as well.

You're not giving them enough voltage, they have trouble starting and it makes the tachometer read crazy numbers.

Have you set the fans on a "silent" profile in BIOS?

my mobo has something called "Q-fan" im assuming this is the "silent fan" feature. After I do this, how can I change the voltage?

Q-fan is ASUS' fan control software. Set it to disabled and all of your fans should be running at 100% all of the time. After you confirm that your fans are working correctly you can either choose from one of the supplied profiles (Silient, Normal, Turbo) or set your own custom curve (Manual).

okay, I just disabled asus q-fan and went in to AI Suite II and changed the profiles for the chassis fans to "turbo". it didnt seem to change anything

There is a fan setting in the bios. I believe it is in the "monitor" section. There you will find fan settings from quiet to turbo. You should also find case fan settings there. Set them to 100% and see how it works. I have them at 90% on my Sabertooth because they got too noisy at 100%.

EDIT: Get rid of AI Suite! It is buggy and can cause problems like a laggy mouse.
