If you use Y splittercables, then you can combine all the fan connectors to 1 connector,
and connect this connector to the chassis fan connector on the mainboard, then you can use WGXepc64 to lower the fanspeed as low as you want.
Keep in mind, that lowering the fanspeed too much, the cpu temp will raise under load.


I was initially hoping to have independent control of the fans based on temperature, but perhaps I can get to a balanced medium.
Thanks for the response, I'll get splitter cables ordered.

Thanks Stephenw10, I'll start looking into replacement fans. Unfortunately I have a feeling that I might be putting the XTM525 on sale and installing pfsense on a Dell T30 server.
Thanks once again

Greetings folks,
I am a long time tomato user preparing to move to pfsense. I recently picked up an XTM 525 via craigslist and added a SATA SSD. The installation went smoothly other than a minor hiccup with the characters not displaying properly on my terminal.
Unfortunately, the unit is a bit too noisy for my home despite using WGXepc64 for slowing down the fans. The noise appears to be originating from the CPU fan(s), which I understand are controlled by the bios. Unlike the bios in other systems, this unit 's bios is dated 4/26/2010.
I'd appreciate suggestions on how to get the bios unlocked/CPU fans silenced.
Thank You
