I have an antec 900 with 6 case fans, most of which are plugged into the psu. When I first start speedfan, it registers the CPU0 and the CPU1 fan, but after 5+ hours of stress testing, those fans are like the screen shot- not registering.
Really, I think speedfan must just be wonky after a few hours of stress testing, because it seems fine after a reboot, and even for the first hour of a stress test. I'm going to give realtemp a shot during stress testing instead.
well i am very familiar with that case. it has great cooling. are you runing on an overclock or just trying to lower the vcore. because if you dont have a high enough vcore you will start to crash. also you usually dont run a stability test for more than an hour.
I'm at 3.6 (9X400fsb), and I've been running the vcore at 1.4 for a few months now with okay temperatures. But I never really took the time optimize, so I wanted to start finding the minimum vcore I could get away with to lower temps.
Why does the overclocking sticky guide say that a stable overclock is after it handles a prime95 test w/o errors for 24 hours? Remember, I'm not crashing at all- I'm just getting weird readings from speedfan, and I don't think they're right at all.
5C would be worth it to me, because I idle at about 40C, and I'm about 48 at a normal load.
Yeah, I think speedfan just wigs out for me after about 6-7+ hours of prime, because today I've run it for 2-3 hours at a time, and it's reading temperatures pretty normally. I've no other explanation, but things seem fairly normal to me otherwise.
