Could someone please explain how I'd control my fans' speeds with...well, any program that does it?

My CPU, Intake, and Exhaust fan are all plugged into the mobo, and I can read the fanspeeds with Everest, MBM5, and Speedfan(except the CPU fan reads like 15,000 RPM sometimes...). I just can't figure out how to control the fanspeeds to quiet them down. It's pretty loud right now.

Thanks

O.K. So your fans are all connected to the mobo, and you have SpeedFan, right?

Open SpeedFan, and on the bottom left-hand, you should see things labeled Fan1, Fan2, Fan3, etc. you can change the percentage there. 100%, obviously, means the fan is running at full speed. You can slow it down by lowering the %.

EDIT: Picture. No, that is not my system.

EDIT2: BTW, after you lower the speed, don't forget to click "Minimize" not the "X" in the top right-hand.

Is there a way to have the fans controlled automatically? Based on temperature, perhaps?

I know I control the speed of the vid card fan with the omega drivers but that wont help you, maybe there is a driver program that will do it for you. Omega is not sorted yet for nvidia.

Hm... It seems that my mobo is only seeing my CPU fan, chipset fan, and fan 2(exhaust fan). It's powering fan4(intake), but it's not detecting it. I also can't control the speeds for any of these fans with speedfan still.

Any suggestions? This thing is kinda loud =/.

Yes, but it doesn't seem like it is...

That would be a temperature probe. I have three of those.

What are the brands of all the fans hooked up to the mobo? Names, too, perhaps.

The two case fans are Lian-Li stock. The CPU fan is a Thermaltake Big Typhoon stock. The chipset fan is a DFI stock.

An update: I did some sort of Speedfan thing where I download the config of another user, and it now shows which temp is which, and it seems to be controlling my fans automatically... but I can't really tell if it's just saying it is, or if it is.

It still only shows one reading for a case fan though.

Anyone?
