See the motherboard manual, Chapter 2: BIOS Information, Section 2.5.5 HW Monitor Configuration and the sub-section CPU Q-Fan Function on page 2-18. The default values are fine, but if you want to change the fan speed you will need to do it manually by setting the CPU Q-Fan Mode to Manual. If you're not sure about this, then leave it set at its defaults, as this automatically adjusts the fan speed according to CPU temperature.

It may do you good to familarize yourself with BIOS. It may come in handy. Setting the fans can usually be done in bios and if you stay in that part, there is little that you can hurt, and you can always change it back. Asus usually offers an AI Suite of utilities that contain a fan control in it. You can download it here, if this is your board. Failing that, consider buying a simple fan controller. You'll have more control that way anyway. I'm not aware with any other software that may work. There may be some, but unknown to me.

Are you having a problem with your computer that makes you want to change your fan speed?
Reading and understanding your motherboard manual will always be useful.
You have AMD and I have Intel. With Intel I have found that SpeedFan is garbage.

Remember the computer is a big air cleaner and as such the dust cakes on fans and fins. Always a good idea at the first sign of heat issues or at least twice a year open up the computer and blow and clean the rig out. Don't touch anything other then the fans and I like compressed air and a small old tooth brush and q-tips as well i use a dry small paint brush to loosen dust.
