If it's plugged into a PWM'd mobo fan header, then plugging it into a 12v molex connector (via 4pin-3pin adaptor) will probably give you full speed. GL

If plugged into the fan header on the mobo, check in the bios to see you have any cpu fan speed functions that are enabled.

Either plug it direct to the PSU (Molex...if u have adapter) or disable any fan speed controls in the BIOS.
