    Question [SOLVED] CPU fan always at full speed even with "Automatic" in BIOS > H/W Monitor

    Hello

    I just bought a mini-ITX host with an ASRock A75M-ITX and powerd with an AMD AMD A8-3850.

    Even after upgrading the BIOS to the latest release and changing the CPU settings in the H/W Monitor section from "Full On" to "Automatic", the CPU fan is constantly running at full speed.

    The fan is connected to the mobo with a four-wire connection (Black, yellow, blue, red).

    Before getting a hardware solution, is there something I could try in software to regulate its speed?

    Thank you.

    I should have checked in their Download section before asking: ASRock provides a utility called "ASRock Extreme Tuning Utility" that let users manage the CPU fans.


    ASRock > A75M-ITX


    It's not super-silent yet, but much better.


    There isn't a lot of space in that mini-ITX case, but I'll see what bigger CPU heatsink + fan I could use with that CPU.


    Thank you.

    Still, it's odd that I have to run an application in Windows while the BIOS should be able to manage CPU speed when using the "Automatic" mode
