    Hi,

    Does anyone know if there is software to minimise computer fans speed. Mine sounds like a jet engine.

    I did use Asus pc suite but it's unstable. Just curious if there was anything else I. Could try.

    Thanks.

    What motherboard are you using, and is this fan connected to the board or directly to the power supply.
    Is it a three or four wire fan (4-wire = pwm and that should be adjustable).
    Recently I had an AMD cpu fan that went bad and would only run on the highest speed, could not slow down. I wrote to AMD and they did send me a new fan, the new fan could adjust it's speed properly and ran quietly again.

    If you are on 3 wire header buy an 3 pin Y-cable for two or more fans and a low rotation fan is advised. :)

    It's an Asus 170k Pro. I'll try the software first.

    Also, before doing anything, check your hardware temperatures (google "hwmonitor"). If your system sounds like a jet engine, maybe something is wrong with it. If your system sounds like a diesel engine, you have damaged/worn out fans and most probably they need replacement
