    I purchased a GigaByte GA-7VT600-L over the weekend, (along with an AMD 2600+, Cooler Master Aero 7+ CPU fan, a stick of Corsair CMX512-3200C2PT RAM, BFG FX 5600 GeForce), and installed everything into an Antec Sonata enclosure. I have not tweaked or over clocked anything as yet, and I am a little concerned with the system and CPU fan speeds.

    I have the case fan plugged into the SYS FAN connector and the Cooler Master plugged into the CPU FAN connector. When running Gigabyte's EasyTune 4 program, it flashes a warning that the System fan is at 1854 RPM and the CPU fan is at 2250 RPM. The temperatures read; System 36 degrees C & 96 degrees F, CPU A 56 degrees C & 132 degrees F, this was confirmed by checking the BIOS. These speeds and temperatures were taken with the computer idling after 15 minutes. The Cooler Master speed setting adjustor is turned to maximum at these readings. I have verified the operation of the Aero 7+ with two new units, both behave similarly.

    Is this normal? The Cooler Master Aero 7+ is supposed to have a Max. RPM of 3500. Have I incorrectly installed something or purchased an incompatible component? Any information that you may be able to provide would be much appreciated!

    Please tell me there's either some thermal paste or thermal pad between the heatsink and CPU....

    It's just the easytune4. I also had this problem. Try sandra or motherboard monitor. Also the sys and cpu fan connectors are mixed up, and thats with all monitoring programs and the bios. This just can't be fixed by switching plugs, the one labeled sys can't be reached by any hsf wires, it's just too far away on the other side of the board.

    If ya powerin' these fans from the mobo headers and not just monitoring them then that's likely ya prob with it as fans should never be powered from them, power them straight off the PSU.

    The power to the fans are coming from two connectors out of the power supply marked FAN ONLY.

    Those "Fan only" connectors are controlled by the PSU and are regulated accordin' to the temps recorded by the PSU itself. I never use those connectors just for that reason and you should connect those fans to the other molex connectors.

    Yep! Those fan only connections were controlled by the power supply as Wiggo stated.

    Much obliged guys! I owe ya one! Would that be a doble bock or pilsner?
