my cpu fan funs at full pelt all the time when plugged into my mobo, its stupidly loud, but it is adjustable.

i cant find any ways in my bios of changing the fans speed, and speedfan allso doesnt work when trying to change the speed.

Has anyone got any ways of changing fan speed without buying a fan controller? Any free software people know that works?

Cheers, gratefull for any help

Try Speedfan - if that doesn't work you don't have much hope TBH


Your GPU fan speed can be controlled in RivaTuner

If you cannot do it through the BIOS or speedfan then the only other suggestion would be to try something like this: http://www.quietpc.com/gb-en-gbp/products/cables/zm-mc1

or say these: RC56 and RC100 Resistors http://www.quietpc.com/gb-en-gbp/pro...ries/resistors

Very cheep alternatives to a fan speed controller

You could also try smartguardian, if it has an ITE chip on the motherboard
