help, Speed fan and high temps

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I'm wondering is there anything magical I gota do to get speed fan to adjust my cpu fan. I'm sitting here changing things and even with the side pannel off I hear no change in pitch. Its a older Sony vaio with a 2.66ghz P4 that I use mostly for just internet so its not a power house. The cpu temp on speed fan is hitting 53C and 49C in the bios just at idle. It has the stock sink and fan and I don't think I ever bothered to remove it.

My system specs are for my game rig so there not going to help in this case and it shouldn't matter to much anyways for a question like this.

Edit: on load I've seen it hit 59C on speed fan and the cpu fan is a 70mm fan and hits 3790rpm when the cpu temps clibs. So when I change every possible thing on speed fan that has to do with the cpu fan to 100% it should be doing at least 3000rpm but it idles at 1400rpm...

Well. Firstly those temps are abit High. I would consider a better cooling solution with some good thermal compound. However that aside for a moment. Have you connected the CPU fan to the Motherboard using the 3pin Connector ?. This is the only way to change the fan speeds through speed fan is if you are using the 3pin into the motherboard.

Yes sir, the cpu fan is connected to the motherboard just like it should be when it was bought assembled. The few things I've done to it since then is swap the exhuast 80mm to a 90mm. added another 512 stick of pc2700 for a total of a gig. Then swaped the stock 64meg card for a radion9550 but nothing drastic.

So really everything CPU wise is completely stock. So normally I'd be freekin out about the temps because I agree they are very high but its stock. I've removed the fan a few times a cleaned the dust out of the sink every few months. But it almost idles at 55C and only hits 59C on prime for 45min and when I touch the sink it very very warm like a gpu sink. If its been like this for the last 4 years its incredible.

even if i did get better cooler I don't even know what socket type it is. the model is PCV-RZ24G and im not having luck using google..


Edit:nm I found the type of motherboard and socket throug everest. its a 478 and the board is a AsusTek P4S533-VL.. Only problem I relize now when I look at it, is the northbridge sink sits right next the cpu sink. So getting a new one that fits would be tough...

bump...
speed fan still isn't changing the fan speed..
maybe I should try the air cooling section..
