  1. Hi there

    My system specs are

    AMD 64 X2 3800+ (939)
    Arctic Cooling (AC-FRZ-64P) Freezer64 Pro
    Asus A8V-VM SE
    1GB PC2700 RAM
    Windows Vista Ultimate Edition

    I would like to adjust the speed of my CPU fan. The motherboard does support Cool n Quiet however there is no option to adjust the CPU fan speeds. Is it possible to change my cpu fan speed using software?

    Does your Arctic Cooling Freezer 64 PRO connect to the motherboard using a 3-pin fan connector or a 4-pin fan connector?
    Fan speeds can only be adjusted if it has a 4-pin connector (it's called PWM fan speed control).
