    Your fan connector requires to have 4 pins on the motherboard to enable control of fans, a three pin set up has no on board controller. I have had the Asus version of that board and can't adjust speed, really annoying. You can purchase a front panel controller easy to install yourself and controls via molex connectors with dials that you can adjust from the front of the chassis if that helps.

    Thats good its great to have control over temp for fan speed control. Noisy computers annoy me. Also a if a fan is noisy it could be that it is not sitting properly or needs to be replaced. Its good to replace a heatsink fan every so often to avoid the wear and tear.

    A 4-pin CPU fan is probably required to take advantage of the speed-control feature. This is the case with the GA-78LMT-USB3 6.0 F2 (Socket M2) motherboard.
