pwm fan cable
I have a 5 year old case and it doesn't have the best ventilation, thus I have had to add rather loud cooling to get the best performance out of it. My room gets hot in the summer as well and I like to keep things cool to preserve my parts for as long as I can before I eventually get a whole new comp. Anyway I have a scythe ultra kaze blowing air on the mobo and vrm specifically which really keeps my system much cooler. It's a 3000 rpm fan that pushes 127 cfm. But its pretty loud. It doesn't bother me but I was curious as to what adding a pwm fan cable would do.
From what I understand, a pwm cable just limits the speed at which the fan runs right? I would like to have the fan run slower and more quietly at lower case temps and ramp up as load increases. But I don't want to buy a fan controller particularly. So what can I do? There isn't fan control through my bios nor through mobo software like fan xpert.
