Got a new fan that's very loud!

Hey guys ! My new Scythe Ultra Kaze fan just arrived. It's currently running at 100 % ,at about 3000 RPM,which is way to loud. Is there any software I can use to change the speed? I've tried with SpeedFan and BIOS. In BIOS,when I click enter ,I have only 2 options,3000 RPM or IGNORED. At SpeedFan,I don't have some options ,like setting the max RPM and min RPM of my fan.
Any help would been apreciated .
:]

How do you have your fan connected to your system?

Only fans that have 4 pins (connected on a 4-pin fan header on the mobo) will allow to change the speed from BIOS or programs.

Others need a fan resistor to manually drop the speed of rotation down (it has only one setting, if you want to go lower you need one that has a lower voltage), or a fan controller. (basically a variable resistor, can set the fan to any speed).
There are far fancier fan controllers with all kinds of stuff.

Bob, I was under the same impression about needing a 4 pin fan for mobo speed control. My old DFI Lanparty BIOS has speed control for three fans in BIOS using three pin fans. It controls cpu, chipset and one system fan, you set a speed profile based on temps you can set for each devise. For the OP I think a in line resistor is your best bet, very affordable and effective.

CPU Fan is too Loud
I go into the BIOS and no matter what I do under POWER and set the fan to any speed or anything it won't do anything to the fan speed. Is there anyway to slow this fan down because it is screeming.
