I recently bought the asrock z77 motherboard and replaced my gigabyte p67.
I noticed that ever since installing the new mobo, the fans have gotten really loud. Speedfan says that they are going at max speed, so I went into the BIOS and turned the settings to automatic. There are settings for "fan target speed".
I set the target speed to the lowest level "Level 1", but even now the fans are still louder than they were with my previous motherboard. Speedfan detects that CPU fan is at 1351 RPM and chassis fan is at 815 RPM.
CPU cores are all sub 50 C, so these speeds are a bit unnecessary (and the noise is a bit annoying). Does anyone know how to get the motherboard to stop overestimating how much fan is needed?
