i have just bought a new case fan, it is PWM and the RPMs are 600-2000. i want to know if there is a way to control the fan speed because every 3pin/PWM speeds it up to 100% and it is very loud at this speed. how can i control this without a fan controller, or do i need one? can i do it right from my UEFI BIOS when my computer is done? (my computer is not done, i still need a SSD, HDD, and the CPU.)

i have a MSI Z77 GD55 by the way, i have still yet to see the BIOS, i'm currently using a 7 year old ASUS pentium D extreme set up (originally was a pentium 4) and i can't do anything in there. i can't even OC. forget changing fan speeds either.

I had the same problem. I use two programs.
One I downloaded from my Mobo website: ASRock EXTU.

Also I downloaded a program that any platform can use: Speedfan

http://www.softpedia.com/get/System/System-Info/SpeedFa...

They have a setting that allows me to reduce my Sys, FPU, Aux: I reduce
those to 50% (not gaming) and Check "automatic fan speed" That keeps my
fans running at around 1200rpm, not 2000 (full auto)

I highly suggest this program. Try this first.

no unfortunately, I baught it at my local store and I don't think they will take back anything already opened. what is the difference between a PWM fan and a 3 pin fan anyway?

and moles fans are just uncontrolable without a fan controller correct?
