My computer's been running slower and slower. I just bought a new hard drive because the S.M.A.R.T. readings showed my old one was bad. That sped things up and I thought I had solved mjy problem, but there is still slowdown... my computer is 4 years old but the specs are still good enough to run most apps pretty fast. I have completely defragged hard drives, ton of free space, and I run a very clean computer (ad-aware, registry mechanic, etc.)
Could the speed possibly be an overheating problem? I just installed a new fan in the bottom front of my chassis cause the old one wasn't even running. I don't feel much air coming from the other 2 fans on the back and the processor fan. Maybe dust-off, or do I need new fans?
Here's my speed fan ratings. I can't tell what's good or not, because I don't know what each temperature means, and I don't know which fan is which, nor do I know what a good speed is. If anyone can help me out with this, it would be greatly appreciated.
Only reason why I say it could be overheating is that temp 2 is my cpu temp reading. Seeing that your reading for temp 2 is 70C, (assuming it is the CPU temp) your CPU usage must be high. Take a look at the task manager to determine if the usage is high, when it should be idle.
When your system is actually idling in windows (usage 1-5 percent) it should drop in temp for that one reading.
