Default Case fan speed!!

I installed a new red 80mm fan at the front of my case. Its loud first of all cause its 80mm BUT! the ultra that was in there was not so loud. It spun at around 1400rpm. This red one is going wild at 3200+RPM. Ive tried the program SPEEDFAN and its not compatible with my motherboard as far as adjusting anything. It does read tempetures and the rpms fine. Looking on speedfans site it gives a list of which boards are compatible and mines not one of them.

So my question is, does anyone know of any software that is out there that can adjust this fan. its in my motherboards system fan slot. TY.

If your motherboard isn't capable of adjusting the voltage at the fan pin headers, then there's nothing any piece of software can do to change that. The other possibility is that only certain headers on the motherboard support voltage adjustment (My own board is like that, for example).

Rats..cause I know many other Gigabyte boards are supported by speedfan. I guess I was the odd one out who got one that isn't. Thanks for the info.

PS. If anyone has any programs that they know of that can adjust fan speeds. LINKS PLEASE
