Yeah I am.. the only option is to choose wether I want a 3Pin or 4Pin Server or Workstation. I enabled all the throtle (global and thermal) options. I have it set to 3pin workstation right now.

With the 3 pin setting the fan will always run at %100


Change it to Server 4 pin.

All the supermicro supplied Hotswap fans are 3 pin, does that matter?

Same as mine.

But you're cpu is 4 pin and that's what matters and what you want controlled/modulated. Right now at 3pin it's running 100%, and the source of your noise. Those 771 fans are loud at full throttle.


The 3 pin hotswap fans will run at full speed, but that's a good thing for drive bays.


Try setting the bios to Server - 4pin and then check your temps with something like Everest for a day or two to be sure everything is good.
