No, but you should be able to adjust it.

Well, it adjusts based on temperature, which it is doing, but there should be something in the CMOS setup/UEFI that lets you change that. May be under something like hardware monitor. Or a utility on the motherboard CD may do that too.

But, if it is nearly silent, I wouldn't worry at all.

is it a 3 pin or 4 pin fan. 3 pins can't be directly controlled through a motherboard header so they will run at they're max speed.
