Once you enable Q-fan, and set the CPU and the chassis fans to run at Silent, you're done!!
It will automatically run the fans in the mode you select.

Sorry but, should I also set the CPU to [Silent]? Wouldn't this speed it down?
And about the chassis fans, is it the build-in chase fans, or my two customs?

Sorry for a bunch of questions

I would recommend running the CPU fan at Standard. Yes, "Silent" will slow the CPU fan down. As stated, you want the system to control the CPU fan so that if you're gaming, the fan speed will ramp up to cover the extra load on the CPU. Now, if you're not gaming and use the computer for every tasks, then "Silent" should suffice.

Regarding the "Chassis" fans, it's up to you. Any two fans in your case that you want controlled by the Bios, can be hooked up to the Chassis fan headers.
