Specs are below. Basically I have two fans on my hyper 212 evo cooler, one plugged into cpu-power and one in the chassis power, both are 4 pin i believe. I can control it with speedfan, so what I will normally do is set it 70% with speed fan as soon as i boot it on. However, It's really annoying to do this, and at 100% it is quite loud. At 70% it's as if it is not even on.

Anyway how do I permanently change it to 70% or around that, or atleast make it so it adjusts to the temperature. In the BIOS of my motherboard there are speed levels for the fans, however I do not know which is fast and which is slow and where I should have it at. I am pretty sure my answer lies right here. So what do I set them to? Here's a picture of it.



Be advised this is not a screenshot of my computer's settings, this is someone else screenshot.

Thanks!

Why do you not just activate quiet fan are smart fan which ever it is called and let the motherboard regulate the fan speed that is what PWM fans are for.

I'm pretty sure it's enabled, if there is that option. However it only controls the CPU fan, not the aux chassis fan, so I need to know which level is best.

Yes I have two fans on 4 pin, However I'm pretty sure the smart fan only controls the cpu.

4pin motherboard should regulate the fan as well but you will have to set your target temps in BIOS.

Having them temp controlled is the best option since then the fan speed will ramp up when it needs to.

I have an ASROCK Z77 Mobo that has an almost identical screen.
If you want auto temp control, I would set the 'Target fan Speed' to Level 1 (lowest speed). The system will only ramp up if you reach the target temperature.
Level 1 is the lowest. Level 9 is the highest.
If you want to control the CPU fan with Speedfan instead, set the CPU fan to 'manual', set the target speed to 'Level 1', and then let Speedfan do the controlling.
