I'm really sorry about that. Reading back I noticed I forgot to mention this. The other fans in my list are not really intended to be used on CPU coolers, at least not on newer boards that have a 4 pin PWM CPU header. I forgot that to mention that you'd need to do some adjusting in the bios to get it to what you want. That fact that it's a 3 pin fan could be part of the problem. What you could do is check the bios under "Power" menu, go to "Hardware Monitor", and make sure "CPU Q-Fan Control" is "Enabled". If it is disable it, shut down the PC, turn it back on, and change that setting back to "Enabled". As for the profile, it is most likely set to "Standard". If so, change it to "Silent". That should help. The fan is efficient enough to cool the CPU on that setting regardless of how much you push it. If you do notice temps get a bit out of hand after that go back in, change the profile to "Manual", and fool around with the settings there. You could use "Turbo" but that sets the fan to 90% (disabling Q-Fan support ups it to 100%). Instead I like to alter the range the fan speed will run in based on CPU temps. If I remember you should see 2 settings, each with it's own fan setting: one to do with the upper temp, which you could try setting at 60c or 70c with a listing on what percent the fan should run when the CPU hits that temp (try 100% for now, and lower it as you go), and one to do with the lower temp (set it to 40c or 50c) again with it's own fan speed setting (set it to 20%). You might have to fool around with different ranges and fan %s before you find one you like. Oh, on a side note, don't use AI Suite to adjust fan settings. It can mess things up, and not report the proper speeds/temps after a while. Sometimes I find I have to not only uninstall it, but go back into the bios and disable/enable Q-Fan for things to work again. And although you might not like to here this, another thing you might try is picking up a PWM fan, use it for your CPU, then replace the top fan with the Gentle Typhoon.
