I have just today had a pc built with the following specs Motherboard: ASRock A75 Extreme 6 CPU Cooler: Scythe Ninja 3 Rev B Videocard: GeForce GTX550 Ti CPU AMD A-8 3870K Llano Black Edition Powerfeed: Sharkoon WPM500
And other stuff that is probably irrelevant
Now the problem is that on first startup my CPU fan seemed very loud (I have tested this and I know its my CPU fan since I stuck my finger between the fan). After updating my drivers and updating my bios the CPU fan still remains very loud.
According to my ASRock tuning software and my bios it is running at 1800+ RPM constantly, I have tried changing these settings in my Bios and the Tuning software to no avail.
Previously my case fan controls were also not working, but they are running at 1400 rpm on their lowest settings currently (which is ridicilous and not that quiet either), I got them to work after updating my Bios.
Important note: Speedfan registers a different CPU fan speed than my Bios and the Tuning software and cannot control the fan speeds at all.
My Bios is currently set to default settings (post bios flash) with Cool n Quiet enabled.
I was wondering if anyone knew a fix for this as I am hard pressed to take the 30 min drive back to the store to find out I could've fixed this.
And yes, I have checked and the CPU fan is connected to a 4 prong CPU fan slot (CPU Fan 1)
More aboutrunning loud
disable the cool and quiet also did you put thermal paste between cooler and cpu what temp you got using this http://www.hwinfo.com/
Cool and Quiet disabled, no difference, there is Thermal Paste present as smeared upon it by the company that built it for me, hwinfo's 64bit version tells me in not on a 64 bit version even though I am.
Core temp at 23 centigrade when idle, 36 when playing a game on Ultra
