okay i just tried using the pump header but with the exact same result - dc fan still running at 100% and curve doesn’t affect anything

I got it to work via a program called "fancontrol" it's some open source program that works pretty well, but only for the pump_fan header :/
thanks for the advice, i already tried it with fancontrol aswell, unfortunately it behaves exactly like in the bios and msi center.
i even tried flashing to the original bios version, but that hasn't changed anything either..

Hi all,
Since my last visit, I bought a set of x5 EZDIY pwm fans. Reading your answers, i'm disappointed about this MB. Are they doing an update in the future ?

Hi all, I'm one of the people that bought a case provided with DC fans and was disappointed to find that the Pro Z690-P DDR4 offers PWM control only :(
Is this a hardware limitation unfixable by software (BIOS) updates, or can I keep hope and avoid buying an extension card to circumvent the issue ? Asking because the previous posts are not quite clear to me. Thanks

Btw, I tried the pump_fan header, and it did not work for me (setting a curve had no effect), so this seems to be PWM only as well, as expected.

it is PWM only, DC fan is not compatible. Most likely it won't be fixed by BIOS update otherwise, MSI will have a BIOS that enables DC mode from the beginning.
