    Is there any way or any program that I can download that enables me to adjust the speed of my cooling fan? I appreciate the replies very much..

    I'm not sure there's an easy way to do this via software as most fans are plugged directly into a 5 or 12 volt output on the motherboard. There may be a motherboard with a manual adjustment function built in but usually the speed is adjusted automatically by the system in these cases.

    A much easier way to do this would be to add a hardware device such as a rheobus - http://www.overclockers.co.uk/acatalog/Akasa.html.

    If you're looking to control the speed of the CPU fan check your motherboard's spec first. Some motherboards monitor the speed of the CPU fan and shut the machine down if it's too low. Often using a rheobus falsely tells the motherboard that the fan isn't turning and prevents booting.

    You can usually just set it in your BIOS.

    Filburt, how would I go about doing this in BIOS? I have never really messed with BIOS myself. I appreciate it

    Provided you built your system, you should have a manual for the motherboard which details the fan settings. Not all BIOS can do it, but the one included on my Asus motherboard lets you throttle down the fan speeds from 11/16 to 16/16 of their maximum speed. I did it to lower noise but didn't notice any difference anyway.
