You can just set it in your slicer software such as cura, it should be under cooling in cura, and any other software.

but if im honest these printers with the current fan setup, you almost need that 100% fan speed when you are printing. There's mods you can do to add more fans and run them slower. such as this
But I do know a lot of people have complained about the stock fans, I mean its a cheap printer, so they definitely were not gonna invest in quite fans.

So that's my advice, I personally run mine at 100% but you do what works best for you, especially if the fan noise is a deal breaker.

I found no way to lower the Speed at cura or s3d.
Does not work.

I'll install 2 * 12V Silent Coolteks at one 24V line, cause teh A10m has 24V Fans.
Therefore i must modify Printhead or find on @ Thingiverse

I dont know about simplify3d, but it should have fan speed control, Because that's a basic 3d printer function. But cura has it under Cooling, and if it doesn't show up click the gear and search for fan speed its there I promise.

Problem isn't to find the FAN Control, problem is that you can not control the fanspeed even not over the display.
There is no faster or slower reaction by the fan.
