Fan Speed and CPU Temp! Need Help! Tags: CPUs Fan Speed Overclocking Last response: March 26, 2007 2:15 AM in Overclocking Share Defender2516 March 22, 2007 8:34:41 PM Hey guys, I got a new comptuer in today and went to test it, but it was extreemlyyyyyyyyyy noisy, as if I was mowing my lawn!!! 8O CPU: Core 2 duo E6400 I use a program called Everest to check the stats. Fan RPM is 6,700!! But CPU Tempt is only 14C... or 57F! I'm wondering if both CPU's are activated due to the low temp or its so low because the fan speed is so high... Is this normal?? ~Defender~ More about : fan speed cpu temp 31computers March 22, 2007 9:37:42 PM Check your temps in BIOS! Sounds as though the fans are working overtime and keeping it all VERY cool! If you are not going to overclock it, enable fan control to make it quieter. Defender2516 March 22, 2007 10:49:33 PM I'll have to check my Bios when I get home.. or do you think waiting a few days will help reduce the noise? Its bran new, and people say I should wait 2 weeks for it to "break in". ~Defender~ Related resources Fan setting to keep CPU temp low - Forum Need help with automatically controlling fan speed . - Forum What's a good temp and fan speed for 5850? - Forum SuperDoctor III Not Reading CPU Temp and Fan Speed - Forum CPU and Fan Speed help - Forum Can't find your answer ?

But I can assure you the fan is not sprring at 6000+ RPM and the CPU is not at 14C Defender2516 March 23, 2007 2:35:26 AM Aha! Finally figured out the problem guys. I emailed the guys who sent me the PC, and they said when they shipped it, it was very quiet, however it must have gotten messed up during delivery. I"m thinking.. this thing is going off like a buzzer, so they must be telling the truth then cuz it certainly doesn't sound right. Apparently the fan was hitting a wire which was causing all the noise! I"m just glad a fire didn't start! Fan is quiet as a mouse now ~Defender~ 31computers March 23, 2007 5:25:07 PM Quote:I'll have to check my Bios when I get home.. or do you think waiting a few days will help reduce the noise?

This implies, however, that your temps will drop by a few more degrees! 8O Check the BIOS graysky March 23, 2007 8:54:05 PM What's room temp?
