Commander Pro and Phantek fans

Just installed the Commander Pro into the Evolv X case.

The case has 3x 140mm DC fans and the lowest RPM (apart from 0) which I can get using iCUE is 580. When I connect the fans to Phanteks fan hub via a fan header on the motherboard, I can spin them down to 370rpm

 

Is there a way I can replicate this using the Commander Pro?

Thanks DevBiker.

 

I did some testing with a spare Silent Wings 2 PWM fan and was able to drop it to around 25% whereas the Phanteks DC bottoms out at 42%

If I connect the phanteks directly to the motherboard fan header, I can also drop to around 31% - which seems to be the minimum needed for the fans to spin up again from zero rpm.

 

Why is it that the CoPro cant drop below 7V?

I can appreciate that, it's just that I was under the impression the CoPro would give me full range control over my fans which doesn't seem to be the case.

 

I could swap my fans to PWM but that increases overall cost.

It does ... within standard. If they deviated from standard, there's be tons of screaming on here. And, TBH, the best way to have control of fan speeds is via PWM.
