Prime 95 Question

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I seem to be having trouble getting the CPU fan to recognize when the temperatures are getting high while running prime 95. I am getting over 60C but my fan rpm seems to refuse to go over 3500 rpm.

I know it can go a lot faster because I have the fan set to hit max rpm at 50C in the bios, When playing a game the CPU fan rpm can reach 5500rpm or more and never seems to let the CPU get over 54C. What could be the issue causing Prime 95 to keep the fan rpm low? wth.gif

No one else has run into this issue before? Seems no matter what settings I change it won't go over 3500 rpm in Prime95.
