Windows 7: Controlling chassi fan?

Controlling chassi fan?


Are there any software for controlling a chassi fan?

The fan is plugged into the motherboard, and I know it can run at a higher RPM than it is currently doing.

Hello Phrosen,

There's a setting in your BIOS "Power" settings to adjust the speed settings for the chasis fans that are directly connected to the motherboard. A copy of page 3-36 and 3-37 of your motherboard's manual below can help show you more on this.

Hope this helps,

But I was hoping there's a way to control it from inside Windows?

Funny thing is I have a bad habit of saving them almost every time I look one up. Must be why I have over 100 over them so far.
