Hi , i recently downloaded Speedfan to check my fan speeds because i noticed rising CPU temps.
It showed this: .

I notice certain fans are not spinning, others slow, and some abnormally(?) fast. Is there anything to worry about here or am i just clueless? I build my first rig(this one) last year so I am pretty new to all this and would like to keep everything in good shape as most of my PC use is either for games or for 3D modeling and simulations. So keeping things cool would be great.

Any advice on how i should proceed to fix/keep it fixed i would really appreciate.

You can't always trust speedfan. If those fans are connected to your system fan headers on your motherboard, you should be able to see their speeds in your BIOS.

Out of curiousity, are the fans 3 or 4 pin models?

Sorry this reply took so long, My CPU fan is a 4-pin. The Chasis and power fan according to my motherboards manual are 3. According to ASrock OC tuner my chasis fan isn't spinning and my CPU fan is around 3200 rpm. I've not had a chance to check the BIOS yet though.

Try HWMonitor and see if you get the same numbers.
