  1. Hello hayesreddoch;

    Model # of that Rosewill fan?
    If you have it connected to the PSU directly it's going to run at full speed all the time.

    To get the fan quieter - its going to have run slower (and move less air).
    You can do that with a fan controller. Is your case fan compatible with any of your motherboard fan headers?

    Also you could buy a 'fan controller device' or your could add a resistor in the power line so the fan gets less than 12Volts. Examples: 7V and 5V

    -> If it's a cheap fan you might be better off getting a better (& quieter) fan.

    Not sure of the model number but i do know it was like a 8 dollar fan. i have it connected to a 4 pin header on the mobo now but the fan it's self is a 3 pin. any way i can controll speed now?
  3. Did you load up your motherboard's software utility programs?
    That's usually where you'd find a fan control program.
