Yeah, in Linux you can use 'ipmitool' to set fan levels. I'm not sure if there's a Windows equivalent.My fan does not throttle at all, and bios has no settings for it. IPMI gives 3 choices, all of which run my fans at 2000 RPM (max). I tried about 4 windows motherboard fan control utils, but they either do not detect fan speed, or do not affect the speed. Not happy with the noise level.. Also, if I plug in a second fan, the watercooler fans start doing 3 seconds loud, then about 10 seconds quiet oscillation loop. Like a square wave.
Anybody know how to control these Supermicro motherboards? I have a X!!SCA-F. The workstation (W) option has bios settings according to my manual. Yay for them..
It's stupid that Supermicro doesn't offer a UEFI entry or something in the IPMI directly to set the fan thresholds... every other motherboard vendor in the universe does.
