Default HS Fan problem

Ok so my new rig is working great... the only problem I am having with it is the Kaze 3000 hooked into the MB fan/chip socket. It's a 4 pin socket but the fan is 3pin which is fine because I plugged it into the part where it is raised slightly...

My question is it is running at 2950-2980 constantly and it doesn't need to be. I tried adjusting the smart fan in bios and it didn't change it. I know speedfan is good to use, any other suggestions? All my other case fans are hooked up to a controller and they are working just fine. Like I said everything is working fine except for the jet engine on my Megahalems lol...

Default Re: HS Fan problem

The fourth pin on the 4-pin connector is the one required to control the fan's speed, so unless you get a fan with a 4-pin connector you won't be able to use SpeedFan or anything.
Nothing is more permanent than a temporary fix that works.
