So bought a new MOBO and a new CPU (I5 3570) and the cpu fan is on full speed (3000 RPM and it's loud). I can change it with speedfan but it's not permanent and i have to change it when the computer restarts. I was in BIOS and didn't find anything cpu fan speed related. I would like to change my fan speed to automatic, can i do that?

Go to the hardware monitor and see what the smart fan and percentage settings are at.
