Hello, I'm sorry, but i was not sure where to post this, in the "components" section, or the "motherboard" section. So i apologize if i put it in the wrong area, because i have questions on both. I just got new fans for my computer, At first i had them hooked up to the power supply (both of them), but today i had them both plugged into the motherboard and i noticed a difference in the temperature of my computer:

Idle (fans plugged into the PSU):

CPU: 19 - 30 c

GPU: 48 c

MB: 44 c

HDD: 34 c

Idle (fans plugged into motherboard):

CPU: 35 c

GPU: 50 c

MB: 55 c

HDD: 38 c

These are the temperatures of my computer when i sit idle for about 10 mins. But my problem is, Before i could browse the internet and my motherboard stayed at around 50-55 c. To where now when they're plugged into MoB, it goes up to 60 - 61 c.
As of right now, my main concern is keeping them motherboard as cool as possible, So the reason why im saying all of this is because when my fans were in the PSU when i was in game my temp for the MoB would go up to 70 - 71 c. But when they are into the MoB it would max at around 68 - 69 c. So i'm not sure what to go with, Do i want to save that few degrees while gaming or do i want to have it lower when im browsing online?
I currently do not have any programs that can monitor my fans, are there any that i could set the speeds as well as when something goes to a certain temp. I can set the RPM higher to keep it down? I tried SpeedFan but from what people told me it is worthless and i tried it a little and it didn't seem like it was doing much.
I apologize if this post makes no sense what so ever, im quite tired lol.

Your motherboard is getting hotter because it has more electricity flowing through it to power the fans. I suggest a fan controller if you are worried about the temperature.

Are there any programs that will help with it? I have been trying to get speedfan to work for an hour now and it is doing nothing.

I didn't mean a software fan controller. I meant a hardware fan controller so you could bypass the motherboard.

I have seen hotter temperatures on a motherboard so wouldn't worry too much.
Personally i would find that temperature at the high end of my limits.
