Is there a way to control these fans?

I have two of these on my Hyper 212+ and they are really loud. Is there a way to control them? Both of them of connected to the same fan header with a y-splitter.

SpeedFan doesn't do a thing to any of the 3 fans connected to the motherboard.

A fan controller would work great, the fc5 and fc6 are nice.

the bios should have Fan Level control. Level 1-10. 10 is max and idk why ASrock made it that all the fans are set as level 10 as default. You can also use ASrock's Overclock tool to manage the fan speeds.

I have a fan controller but the case fans are using it.

I'll try the Bios thing in a sec.

You can piggyback them and use a cheapo fan controller like the fanmate2

There are much better options though if you want to spend a little more

Bios didn't do anything either. I removed a case fan from the the controller and added the y-splitter to the controller.

Problem solved. Thanks.
