Default Speedfan. A tale of a Very noisy set of fans.

My parents bought me a new computer from bestbuy(Doh!) and ever since I got it I've had nothing but problems. I've finally fixed all the silly graphics issues etc. Now I've got a more annoying problem! My fans sound like they're supposed to be on a jet or something! They are very noisy! Despite all the cleaning I've done to it, Etc. All the obvious ways people have tried to help me out with it, Now I believe that it may have something to do with the inner settings of my computer, I'm not very smart with these issues, so I was wondering if you guys could help me! I appreciate anything that you feel may help, I've attempted to use a suggestion my friend told me about called "Speedfan" but I simply couldn't figure out how to use it! My system info is posted below, If you need anything else, Tell me where i can find the info at and i'll get it for you asap. (: thanks again

Speedfan can adjust the case fans that are plugged into the motherboard.

Build to be updated, a reminder to myself.

You should also be able to control most fans through the BIOS, provided they are plugged into the motherboard and not just the power supply.
