Fans all spinning at >1000 RPM at idle

Looking at my H/W Monitor on the TOverclocker program I see this.

CPU Fan Speed: 860 (sometimes as high as 1200 on idle)

Sys1 Fan: 1073

Sys2 Fan: 1083

These all seem pretty high!

The CPU temp is only 31 C and the System temp is only 29 C at idle...

What could be the issue?

Thinking about getting some Noctua fans and going withe the lower voltage adapters...

  1. Your fan speeds are quite low.
    High fan speed is 2000-3000.
  2. in asus and msi bios if the case fans are set to the system board fan heads you can set them to temp or to speed. some bios like asus have a min fan speed warning. (asus is 600 rpm) to get your fan to go slower you have to set the warning lower or let the bios turn the fans off.

    Fan speed is variable to component temperature, and has insignificant impact on your system as a whole.

    Temp is the value you need to worry about, unless your fans are trying to make liftoff at idle than they won't be an issue.
  4. could you post a picture of those fan reading and witch one refer to each fan also did you use something like cool and quiet in the bios settings ?
