Default HAF 932 Advanced front fan at 400RPM? Should I replace?

I just finished my rig and at the very first boot the BIOS showed all green when it came to the fans and their RPM's ( they were as stated in the info online to go at 700~ RPM ) however later checking my BIOS one of the fans were coloured Red and its RPM has dropped to about 430 RPM. I'm not sure what exactly to do to make it spin faster.. I tried looking around the BIOS, setting fan speeds to 'Turbo' but its still at about 400-430 RPM.

This is the front fan by the way, the red LED 230x30mm intake fan. Is it normal? I was told they spin slower when I'm not doing anything demanding, and pick up when I run software that would heat up my computer. What are my options really?

you can try connecting it directly to the psu instead of your motherboard. Then they will always run at 100 percent!

you could invest in a fan controller.

I honestly don't know how I lived without one. I will never build another rig without a fan controller.
