amd 3700 cpu fan issue?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
my bro has an amd 3700 proc and for some reason the cpu fan has an extremely high rpm and is annoyingly loud. his mobo is a biostar geforce 6100 m9. there isnt any options in the bios to lower the rpm, and speedfan isnt any help either.

is there another program or any other way to lower the rpm on this cpu fan or should he just get an after market cooler?

are there no settings to make the fan spin less betweeen certain temperatures, also have you checked temperatures, could be that they're high and the fan needs to be on that much rpm

the core temp idles around 40-41C. i uninstalled speedfan to see if that would help.

the cpu fan is around 5200-5400rpm. i cant seem to adjust it.

idles at around 40-41, that may explain it, id hate to know what load temps are . Id suggest either reseateing or if possible aftermarket cooling
