Default Fan Controller

I got my new rig yesterday and was wondering how I could control the fans using software
I've got a ASUS M2N-E mobo with a few Thermaltake fans spinning @ up to 1500RPM and they are loud ><

Can anyone help me?

Sorry if this is a little off-topic, but I tried SpeedFan for the first time, and I was wondering if there was anything that could actually make the fans spin faster than their rated speeds instead of slower. I tried doing it on SpeedFan but was unsuccessful. I don't mind the noise; if anyone would rather PM me than bump this up that would be fine, whatever.

The only thing I could think of that could increase fan speed is just giving more juice

...And how would I go about doing that, lol? It's not really that big of a deal, just curious.

Not sure, not much of an electrical person. Why don't you just get more fans?

$$$, plus I'm running out of room, lol. I'm probably going to get a new case soon, considering the NZXT Zero. Full-tower = lots and lots of room, plus it comes with 8 120mm fans. All for $150. Looking good now, birthday's coming up.
