Is it coming from the fan themselves or the case? I had an issue where I had to loosen a screw or two on the fan and the buzzing would stop.

Some fans don't like to be mounted horizontally. You might have to move some fans around.

Sincerely,

If it's controled via th mother board you can use its software to lower it. Or do it in the bios. I always used the Asus suite for my boards.

Your board has its own software. Going to their website would help you get it.

What board do you have and what fan are you trying to control?

The Asus Suite is only for Asus boards.

Gigabyte's fan control in their recent boards is pretty limited in that you have to stick to presets as opposed to setting your own speeds. That being said, connecting those fans to the sys_fan headers and setting them to a Quiet/Silent preset should get them to a lower rpm.

Enter the bios by spamming the Delete key. The fan settings should be in the M.I.T. tab.

Make sure to save your settings afterwards by pressing F10 and confirming your changes.

There's always the option to revert settings to default. 

That being said, it should be easy to avoid changing anything you didn't want to.

they are like rubber screw, they take a lot of the vibration which in turn give less noise.
