My chassis fans are set to a standard profile in BIOS which provides the best cooling, but can be quite loud at times. If I switch to a silent profile I've noticed the CPU socket and die temps remain low while the chipset will run between 38-40°C when the system is idle.

I was previously using Asus AI Suite, but that is a junk program and speedfan isn't compatible with my system.

I need a good fan speed control application which will allow me to run a silent profile while idle or doing menial tasks and then switch to a performance profile while gaming. Any ideas?

You should be able to make a custom fan curve in the UEFI. That's the most reliable way, since software can often be unreliable in my experience.

pwm fans are the way since they can run lower. i just put my on pwn and "standard" and it turned out perfect. they run from about 400-1200rpm i think

Thanks, I setup a curve in UEFI and it works pretty well. Of course PWM fans would also be a lot more help as well.
