I have a problem with my fan speed on my Arctic Cooler Freezer 7 pro rev. 2. The fan speed is going at ~2300 rpm. From what I understand, the speed should be around 900-1500 rpm. The fan makes a good amount of noise as well. I have it connected to the CPU fan on the motherboard[ASRock Extreme x58 mobo] and went into the bios and switched the settings from "Full On" to "Automatic" and yet no luck. Could anybody with any experience with this cooler+mobo give any insight?
Does anyone know if it's safe to change the target fan speed? I have it left at 9, but I see you can lower it. I moved it down temporarily to 4 but my temps went up 8 degrees C. I'm thinking that this is gonna be my last ASRock board that I buy.
I wouldn't be so quick to blame the mobo.
Sorry to say!
but your cooler isn't really known for excellent performance on a 1366 platform.
It's defintely an improvement over stock but that's all.
