    Default CPU fan issue

    Hi,

    I am having strange CPU fan problem. I am using Gigabyte GA-Ma770_DS3 (rev 1.0) with AMD Athlon 64 x 2 6400+ (stock cooler). Recently I've been monitoring my system with Everest and I noticed that my fan is spinning at low rates when on load (especially when playing games). For example when I play Dead space (puts GPU/CPU on max load) my CPU temp reaches 67 Celsius and fan spins at a rate about 3300 RPM although it is capable of doing 6000 RPM. Same thing happens when stressing with prime95 just the temperature gets higher (about 73 Celsius). AMD manual says that this CPU with stock cooler reaches max 63 Celsius. My PC case is old so I leave it open for better cooling. CPU fan just won’t bother to go faster until I close the case (in other words, until I make hotter inside my PC case). Any ideas?

    disabling the fan automatic adjustment in mbrd bios should set the fan running at max speed.See if it really is 6000.That sounds v high.
    Whatever is regulating the fan doesnt think it needs to go any faster at the open case temperatures.I dont know much about A 64 but aside from the manual,what are other peoples "happy max temperatures"?
    Current Systems:

    Asrock p67 Extreme6.............. Gigabyte EP-45 UD3 ...................... Gigabyte 73 PVM S2
    Intel i5 2500k 4.8ghz................ Intel Q8400 3.8ghz......................... Intel D820 2.8ghz
    Zalman 10x cooler.................... Coolermaster V8............................ HP cooler
    8GB Gskill ripjaw ddr3.............. 4GB Gskill PI ddr2.......................... 4GB samsung ddr2
    60GB ssd/500GB HDD .............. WD 1TB hdd.................................... Seagate 160GB hdd
    GTX 460 1GB x2 SLI ................. Msi 9600GT 512MB(died) ........... Onboard gx
    Win7 64 ,750w psu(ocz)............ Win7 64 ,520w psu,seasonic...... Win XP pro ,400w psu

    Yeah Id be checking with other AMD owners to see what temps they are running. 6000 RPM sounds pretty High, I would imagine if your CPU fan did 6000RPM then your computer may take off. The Temps sound slightly higher than optimum but with a stock cooler you may not be able to expect much better. Im sure someone with the same processor will chime in with some real world temps.

    Oh Ok, well keep us posted when you get your fan. I dare say that it will fix your problems as I havent seen tooo many CPU fans that go much above 2300RPM

    I wish I did not have this cooler. Its a nightmare. Besides HDT-S1283 is to big for my case so I am getting Noctua NH-C12P after all. That's the only one suitable for my PC.
