How to reduce fan ramping?

I upgraded from an Enthoo EVOLV ITX to a meshify C and replaced my fans. New build is with a Meshify C, ML140 RGB on radiator intake, ML120 RGB rear exhaust and Phanteks Ph-f140mp top exhaust. When I'm web browsing or watching a show the fans can cycle repeatedly between two speeds. Either speed is fine but the ramping is annoying. Can I use some software to monitor and control fan speed? Currently I used the Asus fan tune in the BIOS settings.

Most UEFI today have a fan controler built in. what is your motherboard?

At me or quote me, I want to hear your opinion.

You can try increasing the interval it checks for change. 3 seconds is what I use. That way the bursts don't get it moving as much. Also try setting a custom curve. Or just set constant at a speed you don't mind listening too. Just monitor temps during various activities to make sure they are ok before leaving it alone.

Increase the fan step up and down time in bios.

ASUS z170i pro gaming, system in the signature.

 

I will see if I can adjust fan stepping in BIOS. Right now it is ramping in 10 second cycles. 2 seconds fan ramp up, 8 seconds quiet.

I didn't find any options for fan stepping

Turns out, the trouble is my RX 480, seems to idle in the mid 40s and kept ramping up and down. I planning to replace it.

In the mean while, I will see what kind of a flat fan curve (sub 50) I can get away with while maintaining a stable temp.
