just built my first pc im very happy with it and plan on getting into overclocking. what is a good cpu temp monitoring program? also my heatsink fan is very slow on my cooler master evo plus heat sink. is this normal if i havnt done any overclocking yet?
if im not running any programs i can literally see the blades of the fan spinning. first time i booted the computer is gave me a cpu fan error. hasnt given me one since tho, and my temps look ok, i just thought that would be my fastest fan in there. in the bios is says the fan is going at around 400-600 rpm
DJDeCiBeL hit it on the nose. Try running something like prime95 to stress test/ heat up the cpu and see if that fan spins up for you. If not, you have a fan issue.
I tend to run Prime 95 for at least an hour on a new build to help "burn in" the chip. When OCing I run it for 24hrs to be 100% sure that I have a stable OC.
