Chassis Fan Problem

Hey Guys! This is my first post so bear with me :) 

I have recently built my first computer (SPECS: CPU: Intel Quad Core i7 3770K/3.5ghz, RAM: 16GB Corsair Vengeance, MOBO: Asus P8Z77-M, Graphics Card: Gigabyte GTX 670 OC).

Everything has been running quite smoothly, my install of windows was clean and all of the temperatures seem healthy. But I had entered the BIOS today and my CHA_2 & 3 fans were running at relatively low speeds. Is this a critical problem? or are the fans just running at those speeds because not much activity is happening on the computer?

Any help is appreciated. Cheers.

Hello... yes... if they are PWM fans and you have set the BIO's for AUTO temperature control... the motherboard temperature control has determined the current FAN speeds are required for proper cooling... there can be different temperature profiles you can chose for them and even manually speed control in some motherboard BIO"s.
