I’ve got myself a new rig – take a look for yourself :)
Anyway, I have no idea if most people know that it is possible to control the RPM of fans connected to your motherboard via SpeedFan, but here’s how I managed it for my new P5W DH Deluxe …
I connected my Zalman CNPS7700-Cu CPU cooler directly to my motherboard CPU_FAN plug, not using the Zalman FanMate2. The same goes for my Zalman VF900-Cu, which is connected to PWR_FAN1.
Take a look at these 2 screenshots, as you can see, bringing the % of down, lowers the RPM of the fans too, taking the noise levels down with them. At around 75%/80% they are truly unhearable!
So, if you want to have control over your fans RPMs, download speedfan, and change the default variables and checkboxes to what you see in these screenshots.
If you are having troubles figuring everything out, gimme a yell :p
