I have my 955BE OC to 4.0ghz stable but since i am getting some strange message in windows (warning: your cpu fan doesn't work properly. you must turn off your system right now and check it!), and it apperas my cpu multiplier drops to 16x(stock), i've done the OC via BIOS.
i would like to know how to stop this issue....
my cool'n'quiet is disabled, in windows 7 the system is configured to performance, not power saving.
my smart q-fan control is enable, the noise when the fans are in full speed is to much for me.
can it be the smart q-fan responsable?
It could be your q-fan or it could be your overclocking. Try running at 3.8 and see if problem persists. I've experienced the same thing with my Core 2 Duo in the past. I had it running at 3.8GHz stable for a few weeks. One day, I returned home, powered on, BIOS told me something about PC crashing due to overclocking and FSB dropped to 233 (default).
My temperatures as just fine, it idles in 36 and loads at 58
i've tried 3.8 but over night i still get the same warning massage and downclocks to 3.2.
I think i'll need to make a fan controller to lower the noise, instead of using the smart-q fan, for doing so.
