CPU fan min rpm as 0 on HWMonitor?

post #1 of 5

NOW
MIN
MAX

This seems little odd? biggrin.gif My fan is controlled from BIOS (Q-fan, Silent mode). Some times I see that min RPM is 0, not like 880..

Just an error with HWMonitor or with the RPM sensor on the fan, nothing to worry about because it will be a false reading.

Some people get errors where it reads temps of -305c etc.

One of my fans sometimes reads a max RPM of 3000 for a split second, just because it is a cheap crap fan.

Do you see the fan spinning? Does the fan RPM modulate like this when in BIOS? If not the problem is most likely HWMonitor is buggy with your MB (a very common problem with using software to monitor temps).

Yes fan is spinning all time, no temperature peaks or no nothing. Some other guy I know had this too with 4-pin fan, without any harm. Just bug.

I had a case airflow issue when the side panel was installed, the cpu fan would go to 0rpm for a small instance, and that did never happen with the side panel removed.
