    I left the fans in the ASUS motherboard to the defaults (Q-fan control), should I try setting them all to quiet?

    i prefer quiet PCs as I dont play games on max settings anyway so my temps on my cpu and gpu never go above 75c anyway.
    Sure, no harm done just to see what happens. If temps get up to say 80, you'd probably want to increase fan speeds and live with the noise.

    I don't know the details of Asus fan control, but typically a BIOS will give you considerable control--should be something other than just "normal" and "quiet". Maybe a curve you can grab with a mouse or numbers you can enter to get say 30 or 50 or 70 percent of normal.

    Maybe you'll see a setting for "if temps hit 50, go to 70 percent fan speed; if temps hit 70, go to 100% fan speed". Something like that.

    Experiment.

    If you have small diameter fans, you may have to accept more noise than you'd like because they just don't move much air even at higher speeds.

    In addition to fiddling with the fan speeds, use a quiet PC case. I have a Nanoxia Deep Silence case.

    I've been running it on quiet settings for 3-5 days and it seems much quieter. Thanks guys.
