Hello,

It amazes me how little I actually know. :) Just got to love this forum!

Was reading the post on 45° - to hot or not.

So how and where do I change the setting at what % I want to run my fans at?

Pls treat this as a green novice question, since the more I read the tips and advice here, the more I feel like one. :)

Regards,
Juanita

A regular fan, be it a CPU fan or case fan, always runs at it's maximum speed by default. If you're willing to pay the extra money, you can swap regular fans for controllable fans which are supplied with a small control panel which slots into a spare drive bay.

What you can do with your existing fans is to install free software such as 'SpeedFan' but it will only work if the fans and their sensors are compatible with software-based speed regulation: http://www.almico.com/speedfan.php
