Asus Dual Intelligent Processors 5 won't recognize any of my fans

Hi, I have recently finished building my PC rig.

I have tried adjusting the fans speeds using a program called Asus Dual Intelligent Processors 5, but it won't let me adjust anything.

It partially does recognize all three of my PC fans as it shows their current RPMs but when I try to adjust them, there is just a big greyed out exclamation mark instead of the curves.

Selecting one of the four premade modes (silent, standard etc.) won't do anything either.

 

I have initially ran the Fan tuning feature a multiple times but it didn't change anything. I have also tried reinstalling the program as well as rebooting the PC multiple times.

 

My motherboard is Asus Z170i Pro Gaming and it is running the current BIOS version, the CPU is an i7-6700 with a Noctua NH-D14 cooler, the case fans are made by Fractal and came with the case.

All three fans are connected DIRECTLY to the motherboard and to the right ports (CPU fan in the CPU port etc.)

 

Any idea how to make the program work? I am attaching a screenshot of the fan speed charts being greyed out.

Are the fans 3 or 4 pin? They need to be 4 pin to adjust speed through a program like this.

Damn, you almost got it right. Question was correct, reason wasn't. You can control 3pin fans and Asus has had that feature at least since Ivy Bridge.

 

Note thought that both chassis headers only support 3pin fans. If 4th pin is connected, it seems to override power to be constant 5V instead of any control. Sadly, these are things that reviewers rarely talk about which encourages manufacturers to false advertising. Like 2 chassis fans being listed as 4pins. Which they are, but since 4pins with fans means PWM, isn't correct. And only way to check if these things are what specs say they are, is to check manual before purchasing.

All three fans have a 3 pin connector. Does that change anything?

No, it should just work. Have you tried to adjust speeds in BIOS/Q-Fan?
