I bought a gateway GT5628 a year ago and have had a lot of problems with it. To start with I had to get the graphic card replaced 4 times (8500 gt) and then i finally just bought a 9600 gt. I've also had to reformat a couple times do to system error. A few days ago I downloaded speed fan and am very confused on what it is reporting:
It kind of worries my that the cpu fan actually slows down under load instead of increasing. Anyone have any clue as to what is going on here?
Motherboard is a intel G33, rest of the specs can be found by looking up the model number above, only modification i have made is changing the graphic card.
I just used intel thermal analysis tool and set the work load to 100% on all cores. Finally at about 80 degrees the fans increased in speed (cpu 3400rpm, outlet 2200rpm) this seems like kind of a high threshold for the fan to kick in, is there any way to lower the temp at which the fan kicks in?
