Can I lower CPU Fan setting w/ these temps? Tags: CPUs BIOS Fan Last response: February 27, 2012 2:23 AM in CPUs Share opqpop February 27, 2012 2:00:58 AM My CPU fan is kind of loud and I was wondering if it's safe to lower the fan RPM in BIOS. This is info I got from the BIOS: Intel Celeron Processor G530 2M Cache, 2.40 GHz CPU Temp: 40C Sys Temp: 26C Fan Speed: 2000 RPM CPU Vcore Voltage: 1.192V CPU IO Voltage: 1.048V DRam: 1.488V GPU Volt: 0.45V 3.3V: 3.408V 5V: 5.129V 12V: 12.32V When I ran Prime95 blend test for 1.5 hours, the CPU temp was ~50C using Core Temp and RealTemp. MemTest86+ worked fine. If it's safe to lower the fan, is there a target temperature I want to reach? I want to lower the fan as low as possible since noises really bother me.

But before you do that lower your fan speed to what you think is desirable and run prime again to see what the temperatures max out at. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
