CPU Fan Speed Question

Not sure if this is in the right place to post this, but anyways. Lately my PC sounds like it is starting spin in high speed. All my fans are working fine.

Looked in the bios and the Temp of my CPU sits at 33°C which is fine. The Fan sounds like it spins faster and the current speed is 4500 RPM of the CPU fan and only 2500 RPM of the System fan.

Is this anything to worry about or is it ok as it is summer here and fairly hot. PC still runs perfect and my Graphics card gets to 70°C after playing games.

Thanks in advance.

  1. When was the last time it's been cleaned? The hot ambient temperature probably doesn't help. Specs?

    Cleaned? what the fan, ah never. Comp is about 2 years old now. Specs:

    AMD Athlon 64 3200
    2x512 DDR 400 RAM
    120 GIG Seagate HDD
    nVidia 256 6600GT
    Gigabyte game case.

    Any Ideas?
  3. I'd take it apart, and invest in some canned air my friend. Take the fans off your heatsinks and blow them out the best you can. Personally, I'd remove the heatsink completely from the CPU and put a fresh coat of AS5 on that puppy.
  4. If he's a smoker he might as well just buy new fans.
