    No, it won't harm your PC. this could be done by connecting the fan to the 12volt supply the non speed regulated one. There have been a report of how to carry this out, but I have to find an example for the wires. It's very easy to do and the speedsensors will still do there work. You only have to connect one of the wires from the fan to the 12volt.

    Connect the middle wire of your fan connector to the 12 volt of a dikdriveconnector.
    The fan will run on 12 volt constantly but your tachosensor will still work
    It won't harm your PC.

    First off, what type of computer do you have? Mine has an option in bios to do this. Also, how many fans, and where are they located?

    I have an acer, It has 2 fans one on the video card and one inside the heatsink.
    No option on bios will allow me to do this, i was wondering if Riva Tuner would allow me ?

    Umm, are we talking about your entire computer, or just your video card? Riva Tuner will allow you to change the fan speeds to max on supported video cards.

    Ok, so do you have any case fans, or just the ones on the motherboard(CPU) and video card?
