Case Fans running at max Speed when gaming

These days some BIOS let you choose the sensor the fan reacts to. Perhaps you can set a different sensor?

 

Post your motherboard and BIOS ver for better help.

Hey man, thanks for the help but I found out the issue. I thought it was the power supply. But then after tearing apart the PC and playing while its guts were hanging out  I noticed that it was actually the GPU. One of the three fans was being snagged by a 6+2 connector making the other fans go sicko mode. Pulled it out, played csgo for like 5 minutes and no issues. Once again I appreciate the helping hand.

Hey I just switched my case from a corsair 500r to a phanteks P400 and I put an AIO in it too. everything went well until i started gaming on it and realized that my case fans went full blast. It was the loudest I had ever heard my PC go. At first i thought it may have been my CPU overheating. When I went to check my CPU temps I saw it was in the 30-34c range. I'm guessing that is not that hot since the average cpu temps for gaming is 75-80c. The same goes for my GPU. That's when I realized that it was my case fans. It only does this when i'm playing a game. I have not tried it with any other games. As of now i've been playing csgo. I tried setting my case fans to silent mode from the BIOs but it still kicked into high gear when gaming. Then I tried to use fan tuning on Fan Xpert 4 but that just made my case fans just outright stop working. Anybody have ant clue as to what to do? These fans sound like my PC is about to have critical failure but all my temps say otherwise.    

 

P.S. idk if this is worth pointing out but my last case had the fans connect to its own fan speed controller. This case now has no fan speed controller and is connected directly to motherboard 

 

P.P.S. I really appreciate everyone's input and help.
