Thanks for the advice, I think I will go for it too!
Naming the heat, I've recently bought a Noctua NP-F14s chassis fan and I've substituted the one on top of Asus back shield (CHASSIS_FAN_2 according to my Asus manual, and I have a Fractal Design R6 case btw) with this new Noctua.
It has 4 pin molex and PWR control that I can modify in BIOS monitor section. Which I did, but despite the BIOS setting s, this Noctua stops spinning as soon as the system arrives at OSX login screen. Which is very weird because in my settings it should spin at 50% over 40C of CPU, which is pretty low temp ... and infact HWMonitor tells me CPU is almost always hotter than 40C .
Do you have any hints on how MacOS controls (if it does!) fans behaviours instead of BIOS?
All the case fans and CPU fans on my system are completely controlled by BIOS. I left all my BIOS fan settings at default.
