Load is when you're doing a lot, like playing a game. 2. Thats fine. 3. Thats probably too high, but it depends, and most likely won't effect much. | Report abuse davcon CPUs Master August 11, 2010 10:10:54 AM Sounds alright since i assume you're using the stock hsf unit and it's summer. | Report abuse hundredislandsboy CPUs Expert August 11, 2010 2:26:59 PM I think your fan speed sensor is broken or the software you use to read your fan speed is off. No CPU fan can go 6,000 RPM. | Report abuse Related ressources AMD CPU Fan question - Forum CPU fan plugging question - Forum CPU Heatsink and Fan Question - Forum Question about my cpu fan - Forum Question about a CPU Fan /Heatsink - Forum Ask the community Publish warmon6 CPUs Master August 11, 2010 3:22:36 PM hundredislandsboy said:I think your fan speed sensor is broken or the software you use to read your fan speed is off.

Thanks for updating me. Never used or heard of Dynatron but then again I turned my head on reviews if the loudness spec was 40 or past 50 dBA. I stand corrected. | Report abuse hundredislandsboy CPUs Expert August 11, 2010 5:14:07 PM Anyway, check your mobo BIOS to see if it has options for the CPU fan profile that allows it to run at its quietest mode and then ramps up, increases the RPM as more load is placed on the CPU. | Report abuse Register or log in to remove Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>CPUs>Cpu / fan question> Related ressources: Forum ForumPlease help with case fan placement, and CPU cooler question ForumCPU Fan Speed Question ForumCPU Heatsink fan question ForumCpu fan question ForumCpu Fan Question ForumQuestion about my cpu fan not being screwed on tightly.
