    Hello Everyone -

    I recently built a new system:

    Motherboard: ASUS P7P55D Deluxe
    CPU: Intel i5-760 OC ~ 3.6 GHz
    RAM: G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3- 12800CL9D-4GBRL
    Heatsink: Cooler Master Hyper N520 Copper Heatpipe
    HDD: Western Digital Caviar Blue WD10EALX 1TB 7200 RPM SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive
    PSU: Ultra LSP650 650w Power Supply
    OS: Win 7 x64 pro

    The problem I'm having is that I cannot control the fan speed of my heatsink. I plugged the pin into the correct CPU_Fan plug on the mobo, the front and back case fans are also plugged into their correct location, CHA_Fan 1 and CHA_fan 2. I tried to adjust the Q-Fan setting in the BIOS to enabled, and also tried it with disabled and cannot control it either way. Also, I tried SpeedFan and it only controls both case fans, but not the CPU fan. CPU fan is running at around 1700RPM. My core 0 temp is around 30 degrees C on idle. I'm just wondering how can I adjust the CPU fan RPM to run faster? Nothing seems to work, even the ASUS Fan Xpert software that came with the Mobo. Can I plug my CPU fan into the CHA fan location since this is the only one that is controlling anything? Please help me out if anyone can, I will gladly donate if this issue can be resolved. Thanks.
