So this one's stumped me, recently I installed a few case led strips into my PC (knowing it increases preformance by up to 20x) and since installing them my case fans have ramped up to 100% it seems when I boot into windows, it's possible I could have moved a wire or something when installing but I don't recall it. When I'm in the bios my case fans are perfectly fine acting and sounding normal. My case fans are connected to my fan hub that came with my case (my case is the NZXT Noctis 450) and I have my fan hub connected to the cpu_opt connector however I have also tried changing to the cha_fan1 connector to no avail. Could it be something in the bios that could have been changed or something idk, this really has me stumped. My CPU isn't hitting anywhere near 100% it's floating around the 30% mark under load.

The fan controller is connected to the psu and the motherboard, so should be working, my only other option will to be turn off the case fans however I don't want to.

I don't actually have software for the controller, it should be being read by the bios but never has, even when it was working it wasn't read by the bios. It worked and I left well enough alone

Tried it. It sorta ticked for for a while, I booted into windows, opened discord about to say whoop I'm not blasting whitenoise anymore and then it started again. So idk what this means... it works for awhile then ramps up after any sort load/and or randomly.

This post says you can use third party software.
I strongly recommend using one since controlling via the bios is rather useless, I mean, its just not the point of a controller.

What thirdparty software would you recommend, as I wasn't using one before this happened and it work fine then.

Ok, so I disconnected my the case fans from the preinstalled fan controller and plugged them directly into my motherboard, the same thing happens. the fans run normally in the bios but in windows they turn up to max speed. the fan cables are only 3 pin but my motherboard has 4 pins, although I read it didn't matter.

3 pins dont support pwm. I dont know if a controller changes that.

 

Sooftware wont work with 3pins
