Fans are too loud.

My fans are way too loud. My case is a fractal design usb 3 1000. And my psu is an evga 600b 600w bronze psu. Whenever I'm playing a game such as rust, the 120mm fan that comes with my case and the fan on my psu are super loud and it's driving me insane. What are some solutions that don't include completely buying a new psu? If I were to buy another 120mm fan would it make the other fans slow down? If so how can I install a new fan? I have an Asus M4A88T-M. Where would I connect the fan to if I were to buy a new one. Sorry if the formatting sucks I'm on my phone.

If the 120mm fan is too loud replace it with an aftermarket one like a gentle typhoon or nocturna. As far as the PSU being loud what PSU do you have, and in what orientation is it? Is it bringing air in from the case, or from outside the case? Your otherboard will have 3 or 4 pin power connectors on it that additional fans can plug into.

Manually adjust the fan speeds to a suitable level. They might be running on full speed.
The issue is fan noise not PSU unless the PSU is the source of the loud noise.
Buying another fan will not slow the others down. You have two choices: 1. connect fans to mobo and then manually adjust fan speeds or 2. connect fans to PSU but they will run at full speed then.
Adding a new fan is extremely easy.

I have the evga 600b 600w bronze power supply. It is bringing air from the inside of the case.

It might just be running hot, do you have the option of turning it over and bringing air in from outside the case?

How can I edit the fan speed from my mobo? And I'm pretty sure the psu and the fan are both making the noise. Also where do I get the screws for the fan as I did not receive any included in my case. And no I cannot flip my psu over as there are no filters.

The fan should already be mounted in the case with screws. Or are you talking about additional fans? Also with the ASUS mobo you should have a utility disk that will install software that you can control the fans with, I believe it is called Qfan.

I am talking about installing additional fans. And I will check the disk tomorrow.

As mentioned. You could flip your PSU over (most people do this) so that the PSU draws outside air in and out the back. However, your case must have a bottom vent with holes. Since your case doesn't then this isn't an option. I didn't realize your PSU was mounted on top rather than the bottom.

Second. You can change fan speed in the BIOS or using your mobo software. For instance, I have a ASRock mobo and I use their program, AXTU, to manually set fan speeds for my preference. Gaming I want them faster. Bed time I want them quiet.

Additional fans will come with screws. However, all that's going to do is add more noise on top of what the other fans are already producing. I suggest you do as the other posters are recommending and look in your BIOS - there will be a section labeled something like 'system', and you'll be able to create a custom fan profile there.

Okay but what's the max temperature my computer should be for all the parts while I'm gaming. Usually my gpu doesn't go higher than 65 but I'm not sure how to check the rest of my parts. I'm assuming that if I check my utility disk I should be able to find programs. Anyways thank you guys and if anyone wants to give me suggestions feel free to.

A GPU temp of 65 is fne and dandy, you could use real temp and CPUz to monitor your CPU temps.

Dude, seriously. If you google "CPUz", you're done. Surely that's easier than posting on here and waiting for one of us to tell you to google "CPUz." :p

Yeah I just wanted to make sure, I have trust issues lol. Also does anyone know a good silent 120mm and 92mm fan?

It you want quiet fans look: Scythe Gentle Typhoon, Noctua (any under 1200rpm), and Corsair AF.

I just bought the same Fractal Design Core 1000 casing. The front fan is spinning at full 1200 RPM and can't be controlled by the motherboard. I have a ASRock B75M-DGS motherboard and although the initial BIOS setting is "Full On", I changed it to "Automatic" and reduced the target speed from max 9 to just 3. However using HWMonitor and other utilities, I saw that the fan is still running at 1200 RPM.

The front fan that came with the casing has 3-pin connector, which I plugged to the motherboard System Fan 4-pin connector. Does this mean that I can't control the speed because 1 pin was missing? Do I need to buy a 3rd-party 120mm fan with 4-pin connector?

You should start your own thread on this instead of hijacking somebody else's, but yes, long story short you either need a PWM (4-pin) fan or a 3-pin fan controller. The trouble is that even though the pins are the same, 4-pins fans are controlled through pulses of electricity through the 4th pin that turn them on and off, while 3-pin fans are controlled through the DC current they're supplied.
