I just got my new CPU and GPU in the mail today, installed them, and now I've been watching them with Speedfan/CCC, and I am really not sure what is going on. Bit of a noob when it comes to this sort of thing, so I apologize in advance for asking any stupid questions.
The RPM for the fan is showing 5400+ and stays between 5400-5800. Isn't that a bit high?
Also, the temperatures keep varying as well -- I've even seen the flame icon appear occasionally next to the temps -- and now I am worried.
I installed everything according to directions (and there is thermal paste on the heatsink) -- and there are 2 other fans in the case not including the one on the heatsink. I have also just opened the side of the case to try to get more air in there.
