Cpu high temperature with non stock heatsink?

Have a fx 6300, not oc'd, runs at about 50 degrees with no games or anything, shoots to 70 in games, heatsink is a cooling alpine 64 pro, its huge compared to stock and have high end thermal paste.
playing tf2 currently and i get 70 quite fast, any way to turn up the cpu cooler fan speed?

The mobo is an asus m5a97 r2.0 if it helps.

thanks

  1. Enter the bios and set the Q-fan option to disable for the cpu fan. This will make it run full speed all the time.

    You may also be able to use a preset like Performance(or even custom) to have the fan ramp up sooner.
  2. Ill try the q fan setting and get back to you in 5 mins
