    Default GA-EX58-UD3R CPU Fan Speed

    I'm a novice. I do the build myself, but I put together what others tell me will be a decent system.

    I don't believe my CPU fan is operating properly. It seems to be on high most of the time. When it's on low, if I do something like load up LOTRO, the fan kicks into high gear, but when I terminate LOTRO the fan stays in high gear.

    Today, I came in and powered up the system, it had been off all night, and when it came up the fan was very quiet. I surfed for about an hour. It's a new build, just a few days old, and I needed to reinstall the sound driver. That caused a reboot. On the way down the fan kicked into high and it stayed that way through restart and windows load. I've been on it for about 3 hours now and the fan is still at high speed.

    My terms are relative, sorry. "high"? who knows. I'm judging by sound.

    Your help is greatly appreciated.

    Go to this website and download HWMonitor and CPU-Z. HWMonitor will tell yo the RPM of your fan and with CPU-Z you can check which BIOS version your board has (under the Mainboard tab).
    A BIOS update might help with the CPU fan, if your board still has an older BIOS.

    I also have the UD3R and I haven't noticed the fan not spinning down under load.

    In the heading "ITE IT87" under Fans, I see 2518 in the value column. For BIOS, I've got F6 from May 11, 2009. I updated the BIOS as part of my effort to resolve this.

    I assume your using the stock cooler. Make sure you have all the pins pushed in all the way. I installed the stock since I was waiting on my noctua to run some benchmarks and I had thought I had gotten everything in firmly but when I jiggled it I noticed one corner was loose. that might be it, just partial contact but not firm.
