Which fan header on the board is it plugged into?

 

See page 60 in the manual for info on fan settings in BIOS...

Actually, tried both CPU header and Chassis one (after I mistakenly to put it on chassis fan header). No luck. And yes, I tried all of what I thought to control the fan. It doesn't support DC control unfortunately. 

 

I guess @tkitch solution's the way to go. Either the cheapo ID Cooling 9215 or twice the price with the Arctic's. 

 

Thanks for the help guys. 

Here's the cooler.

This cooler's actually a good one for my use (rather than getting stock cooler, or anything 'out-of-the-ordinary-of-CPU-cooler-producers' (heck, just lots of RGB), Hyper 212's way overkill, and Noctua's way above budget), even ramming my E3-1225 v2 + HD4000 (no GPU) with Dota 2 60 fps and it still at 50-55 degrees, with NT-H1.

 

But the only problem is I didn't realize it's non-PWM fan. So, constant 1900 RPM all the time. Kind of noisy tbh despite it said 'quiet'. Perhaps in any chance I would change it to a PWM fan so at least to reduce the noise when it's idling (it runs 42 on idle).

 

I haven't find anything useful for possibilities to change the fan. Is there any? Even as far as getting custom 3D printed bracket and put one 8 cm or 9 cm fan on it? I love how Noctua's just using metal holder to hold the fans.

Humor me, as you should do.

It should work with a 92mm fan.

Arctic makes PWM 92mm fans that work pretty well.

(I don't know what your motherboard is but...) Make sure your fan control is set to "DC" instead of "PWM" if you have the option. The fan speed can still be controlled by varying the voltage on the header, and almost all motherboards should support that along with PWM.

ASRock B75M, can't find the option yet unfortunately.

 

Edit: managed to get the motherboard latest BIOS update, still the same.

If noise bothers you, the Arctic F9 PWM gets 44cfm at 1800 rpm, vs the ID Cooling getting 44 cfm at 2500RPM

 

The Arctic will be waaaay quieter in operation

Have you tried using software like FanControl?

Tried it, still no luck. Seems it needs PWM to work.
