Default Case fan help

I thought i'd make a new thread to this i have a few questions.
Ok so iv'e connected all my case fans to the motherboard.

I go to the controll to set the fans to run at 50% each as 100% is just too much and not needed to be honest, ok i set them to 50% and omg

My fans are the most noisiest things ever they squeel, whys that? no matter how slower i put it its squeel squeel squeel, even at 20% the squeel is constant.

Also when i set the speed the side fan only slow down the front and back don't even though there all connected to the motherboard

I tried the Chassis2 Fan control and the Chassis fan control from the monitor temps on the nForce 680i

Any help appreciated to get my fans to a good non-noisy environment.

what kind of fans do you have? what size? how long have you had these fans for? 80mm fans tend to be louder, so if you have several of those, it won't be very silent.

also what is the noise level(dBA) on them? the lower the better. try to find some that are 15-17 dBA fans for an ultra quite pc.

try these 120mm fans
they are REALLY cheap, and REALLY quite. great buy

Don't bother with the 80mm version of those, it is quiet because it doesn't move any air. I have a couple of them and they are useless because they don't provide airflow.
