The minimum fan speed on my AIO feels too high and is loud.

Go to solution Solved by 1982 Original,

Sounds like you need new fans or a fan hub that can go to zero. I would consider fans first I think. I’d wonder about fans that were still audible and unpleasant at something as low as 23%. Not knowing what fans you have, I’d expect most fans to be somewhere around 400 to 600rpm at 23%. Many good fans are inaudible at those speeds. Which makes me consider new fans, especially if you’re sensitive to noise. 

Yeah so as the title states I just installed an AIO in my PC and the fans lowest setting is 23% which is too loud for me when its just idling at 30c. Is there anything i can do to change this? I tried to change the settings in the bios and it wont even let me enter anything below 23% in the fan settings/fan curve. The motherboard in question is ASUS ROG STRIX Z690-F GAMING WIFI. 

 

Thanks for any help!

Thank you for the advice. What kind of speed controller would you suggest? I'm also just gonna go ahead and buy some noctuas to go w it.

I use an NZXT fan and rgb hub. Corsair has one too, I think they call theirs iCUE. Quieter fans is a good choice. Noctua or Be Quiet are what I prefer. Good fans also have a really long life span. I’ve never personally had a Noctua fan go bad and. I’ve had some for 10 years maybe. Trying to think back to when I bought the NH-D14 cooler. Anyway, buy them once and you can keep moving them from build to build over the years.

Yeah I've been using the same CPU cooler tower w from noctua since like one of the first PCs i built but im not super confident about the fan controllers etc i usually just plug the fans into the cpu fan header on the mobo.
