This is the problem: chase's fan and power supply fan are always working on 1000 rpm.. Its not enough, so when i start a game, pc crashes: it freezes for about 2 minutes and than restarts.. Ive tryed to change the speed with sppedFan, but it does not any thing.
This problem come up when i bought a new motherboard, Asus p7p55 lx.
I also enabled speed control in bios, it still 100rpm.

Are the fans freezing? Or is the computer freezing?

The computer freezes cause of high temperature

Skip the middle man and connect fans directly to the power supply.

OR, with fan speed control disabled(Qfan) in the bios, they should run full out all the time.

Please use hwmonitor to check and see how hot things are getting?

More specs like what cpu and if it is the stock cooler would help as well.

Hi there download HWmonitor (oops didn't realized he posted it above, anyways you should download it)
http://www.cpuid.com/softwares/hwmonitor.html

Open up the program and let it run in the background while gaming, when done playing (when you realize freezing) tell me the temperatures in the MAX column. You can also tell me the temperatures while idling, just tell me the numbers under Value. It would however be much easier if you could upload the picture of a printscreen with the program opened and I can just take a look.

Here is mine for example:


For me Tmpin0 is the CPU, Tmpin1 is the motherboard, there should be a video card at the end. I had a video card but I took it out for now because I'm running a bad power supply now :lol: , don't want to risk losing it. Anyways for uploading just upload to photobucket and copy the forum code. In addition, fans make little difference in terms of temperature. More specifically raising the RPM just a bit does very little change, if you have no fans at all then you have a big problem but since you have fans then changing it won't do much. I recommend a new CPU heatsink or a new computer case if its a small one.

Ehm, with SpeedFan software ins not freezing anymore..
It controls only CPU fan though, it runs at max and makes strong noice.
SpeedFan still cant control cases and power supply fan..

First is when im doing nothing, second is when im running Dota2( a game ):

Are you running the stock cooler correctly? Is it inserted properly as well? Your idle temperatures are quite high though it's kind of meaningless since all CPUs idle at different temperatures but your load temperatures are awfully high which you really need to lower. I think for your CPU the max safe temperature is around 72 degrees. Consider in a new CPU heatsink. Though there may be a chance that HWmonitor is displaying it wrong so I want you to check your "idle" (not really at idle, there is a bit of load)temperatures in the bios. Then use realtemp and take another printscreen.

Edit: I think you should ignore Auxtin, quite a few people have bizarre readings for it.

Yea, i fixed CPU fan speed, now its gone from 1300 rpm to 1900rpm in quiet mode(when im not playing) but im still not able to control cases fan speed, it still at 700rpm, so cpu fan works uselessly

As socialfox stated double check temps with either coretemp or MB supplied utility.

If one shot is at idle and one under load - then not reporting correctly. Also 100+ is VERY bad. SB CPUs should start to throttle above around 95 C to protect it. The max temp of CPUTIN of 152 C, Should never be this high.

Also if Using the Stock Intel HSF - DON'T. yes it is OK IF INSTALLED correctly, but it is on the bottom of the totom pole on effectiveness. Remember "Cooler is better".
Personally I never even take the stock Intel HSF out of the Box. I leave in the box so it does not blow away - LOL as you have to have it to RMA the CPU. WHICH you may need to do if the temps are real at some point in the near future. - Hopefully they are not correct.

OLD member, I've not seen in awhile, Supreme law, had a good post on this, basically stating that Intel should be sued for such a lousy design - LOL.

For case fan try a diff fan header or if possible another fan. PSU fan is normally controlled by the PSU, and not by BIOS/3rd party programs.

Now i got bored, it seems that the only one solution is to buy a new pc.

Are you sure? All you really need is a new cooler such as the Hyper 212 which is only a $30 investment and will last you for a long time. Anyways if you are determined in getting a new build then buy it custom, feel free to use this thread to list your new build and we will make sure its compatible. I would not recommend buying pre-made computers since they are overpriced and for that price you can do a much better job.

Yea, i know, im gonna buy one from my friend that is specialized in building computers..
Anyway i have i5 3.20 gHz and ati 5750 and the newest games dont run anymore on max graphics.
Thanx for help.
