  1. When you first start the computer go into BIOS. Check to see if there is some sort of setting that might control fan speed. Sometimes there is some sort of power savings/management program that controls cpu fan speed based on cpu temperature. At lower temperatures the fan runs slower. You might be able to change the settings or even set the fan to run at full speed.
  2. iv tired that, iv set the cpu fan to performace and in the manual it said it will run at full speed and it doesnt seem to work
  3. Any chance there was some sort of software that came with the motherboard? Some motherboards come with drivers and utilities, including a program for power management which might include fan control.
