Default Fan Controller Program?

I have a Dell Dimension 8300 that I want to run the fans at 100% while I game. I tried Speedfan, but it didn't work. Guessing its because its a dell

Anything that will work with this?

You can check in your bios. If it's a phoenix produced cmos then most likely it will have options for adjusting fan speeds. You can either manually set them all to 100% or set it to increase fan speeds when the cpu, or system temperatures reach a certain point.

Otherwise, you could use CPU-Z to find out what motherboard you have and then search to see if that motherboard has any performance utilities that let you adjust fan speeds, voltages, etc.

If the fan run off of the motherboard, you can control it with software or in the BIOS. If it runs directly from the power supply, it will require a fan controller.
