Speed fan question

Hi there i installed speedfan and was trying to get my processor fan to slow down as it is quite noisy. I followed the help files and stuff but the fan speed just won't change. Also tried SpeedFan Configuration Manager but the fan speed not changing. Any suggestions?

How hot was the CPU, and GPU when you tried? was it under load or at idle?
