Default Asus M3a79-t controlling fans

My 3 scythe kaze 3000 fans arrived today, and at first i thought that the motherboard headers may not provide enough power to run the fans at 3000 rpm based on random forums posts i found. Luckily they work, all 3 running at around 2900 rpm. My only problem now is the fact that i cant control the speeds of the fans.
I can go into the bios and enable the asus qfan and set it to "silent" which brings them down to 1800 rpm, but theyre still fairly loud, about the same as my old antec tricools, and if i want them to spin up again ive either got to heat up my case so qfan will turn them up or go into the bios. The windows tool by asus only seems to detect the cpu fan, and enabling/disabling qfan on it does nothing and i cant choose a profile for it anyways, most likely becuase im on win7.
Are there any programs out there that iwll allow me to control the fans? Speedfan wont let me adjust anything :( Id like to have these things spun down to the point where they give the performance of my tricools without the noise or annoying leds, but still be able to power them up. Id rather not buy a hardware fan controller since all my empty bays are stuffed with cables atm.
