Default Fan Control help

So I have the Asus maximus vii hero mobo and i would like to get the front 3 case fans to spin up or down based on GPU temps. Asus's fan xpert doesn't seem to have that option. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

GPU's do not control case fans. You can use the bios and possibly set the temps to where the fans increase their speeds, but that generally is for the CPU. You can get a fan controller to adjust speeds according to the temps of the sensors that you place in the case and on the main board, so get a fan controller with that option

I believe in the Asus bios there is a fan control in there for the fans plugged into the MB one setting for silent and a few other settings.

There are bios's that do control the case fan speeds, but it's has nothing to do with the GPU controlling the case fans
