you can get external fan controllers that have little dials and what not to change the speed of the fans....some fans and motherboards allow for software controlled fan speed as well...

Speedfan works on some motherboards where you can adjust the fan speeds. Some times it does not read the fans right but they are still adjustable. I have a boistar M7ncd pro that lets me adjust the cpu and case fan. These fans have the 3 pin power connectors. I have another 2 pin fan that speedfan does not see.

If the fans have 3 pin connectors thay usually can be adjustable for speed.

Heres some controllers.

You must buy fans that can be speed controled. At the bottom of this page is adjustable speed fans.

Case fans at the back of your case should blow hot air out. Fans that blow into the case are usually placed at the bottom front of the case. I even seal off any holes in the back of my cases with duct tape so hot air does not get drawn back in. You need to remember that the braces that hold the fan in its housing should be placeed against the case. You should be able to see the whole fan front which is the intake side.
