Default Corsair fan control question

Hello,

I am looking at buying the AF140 red led fans (2018 model and up) to replace my generic case fans. Here are the ones I am looking to buy. https://www.corsair.com/us/en/Catego.../CO-9050086-WW

In the tech specs it states these are not PWM controllable fans. However, can I still adjust their speed through my Aorus motherboard's BIOS? Or will they be fixed to 100% the whole time?

Thank you!

No, they will be voltage controllable from 7-12v which is usually around 550-1100 rpm. Nearly all motherboard headers are DC/PWM selectable, except on the most inexpensive budget platforms. Be aware LED function is tied to power delivery, so 7v is not as bright as 12v.

Ah I understand. Guess I'll purchase the ML140 pro's then. Thank you for the help friend!
