In your bios maybe under PC Health Status you can adjust fan speeds. If you have your vantec tornado fan plugged into system fan header on your motherboard you can adjust that speed in your bios. My bios fan settings are http://i109.photobucket.com/albums/n56/Riv...er/100_1006.jpg

 

might be similar to your bios.

 

*EDIT - Here is a quote "A 4-pin molex provides power to the unit, while a 3-pin connector interfaces with the motherboard for RPM monitoring."

hopw did u wire the molex to the fan controller. Did the controller come with the necessary adapters?

 

Generally.... you plug a 4-pin Molex into the Fan Controller. You then plug all your fans directly into the Fan Controller as well. When buying a fan controller, make sure they accept your 3/4 pins or include an adapter. It varies from model to model.
