I have enough connectors on the current psu, I just need to stop the fans running at full speed (making too much noise)

I think a fan controller is the only way to reduce the fan speed (could be wrong)

Put a resistor in power line.

I bought ?corsair fan and included was an adapter which reduced the voltages and made it quieter. I imagine computer builders would have lots sitting in a drawer.

Thanks for the replies. I didn't know about cables with resistors. They could work, I'll have a look, cheers

Ah yes it did, so that's what they are. I just attached them to the noctua. Might just get a couple more then. Thanks

Ah, I've just realised my front two case fans use a molex connector.

I had a Google search but couldn't find a resistor for a molex connector.

Resistors bought, and seem to have made a difference. Thanks for that.

Just one more question, would it be a terrible idea just to have two fans near the back of the cabinet aiming/sending the airflow to the front down the sides of the Htpc?
