Default Fan controller program

Hey I am looking for a fan controller program that will allow me to change the rpm's of my fans (I have 4 case fans). Does anyone know of any?

You're best bet is to set it in the BIOS, but if you want some software, I've heard some good things about SpeedFan.

Here's the CNet editor review:
Quote:
This free program offers some useful system details to those savvy enough to understand its results. SpeedFan's tabbed interface isn't hard to navigate, but most run-of-the-mill users won't be able to make head or tail of the data this utility provides. The program's system-tray icon tells you the temperature of your PC's hard drive, and you can receive information on voltage and fan speeds. The utility can display SMART data and includes a tool for resetting motherboard clocks. Basically, if this review makes no sense to you, SpeedFan is above your head and won't be worth downloading. However, PC technicians and those who like to do their own system maintenance might as well take a look at this application, particularly since it costs nothing.

speedfan acts weird for me sometimes. if i turn on the program and then turn it off my fans will run at 100% rather than the 30% i had them on before i closed the program. i guess its a glitch.

but speedfan would work if you don't feel like going into the BIOS to turn up the rpms on the fans.

Yeah this speedfan isn't really working for me. It only dectects like 3 fans and it says that one of them is at 0 rpm (which it isn't). Anyways i have heard of actually fan controllers that fit into your bay drive. Does anyone know where I could get one of these? Remember I need one that can control 4 fans.
