Hi, this is my first time posting so ya anyways. I recently replaced my motherboard eVGA nForce 780i (since the replacement board was defective). I've noticed that the cpu fan rpm is at 2700 on idle and I was wondering if theres any way I can use a program of some sort to turn down the rpm.

p.s. i have a fan controller that came with my zalman CNPS9700 100mm

2700rpm isn't high, for some coolers that's quite quiet.
You may find an option in the BIOS to auto-throttle the CPU fan based on its temperature.

just for your interest...

everest is reporting that my cooling fan is running at 4,200RPM ( rotations per minute :) )

so i would not be worried about 2,700RPM...

BTW: i cleaned my computer out ( not to mention how i went about doing that :) ) lol

and it brought the temp down and also the rpm ( as the cooling fan was not needed to work so much/hard ( self explainatory ))

as Neil Jones stated the BIOS( basic input out system ) can be used to throttle based on CPU temp ( with some machine's , not all have the option for that )
