    I was wondering if there is anyway I can make this fan run at maximum speed because it is temperatured controlled...and I have two at the front of my case as intake fans...but intake air is usually pretty cool which makes the fan run at slower speeds. Would disconnecting the signal wire adapter from the motherboard make it run a maximum speed?

    The only way is to cut the thermal sensor off and solder the two leads coming out of the fan together

    No, around the fan hub, you should be able to see a thermal sensor, thats what I'm referring to

    in my BIOS, for my A7N8X Deluxe, it has a 'Fan Ratio' setting...this more manually allows to set the speeds, 11/12, 13/14, Full Speed etc. Maybe you have a simular setting?

    His fan itself regulates the speed, so no matter what, its going to change unless the fan is altered. :cheers:

    Yep unless ya remove the thermister bulb and join the wires together those BIOS settin's are worthless. In fact ya just maybe better off to just replace the fan.

    That's why you dont buy thermally regulated fans for intake, or at least ones that dont have a moveable probe. : peace2: Mista K6
