i7 2600 stock fan?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
NOTE: I HAVE READ THE MANUAL. IT IS AWFUL.

YES. IT IS PLUGGED INTO THE CORRECT CPU PLUG. THAT IS WHY I CAN SEE IN THE BIOS THAT IT IS 1000 RPM. IF IT WAS NOT CONNECTED THERE, THERE WOULD BE NO READING.

I just received my i7 2600 and P8H67-M motherboard.

I can only get the fan to run about about 1000 RPM and the temp is around 55 to 60 C and climbing on idle.

1. Is my stock Intel fan defective?

2. What are the normal range of RPMs for these fans?

3. How to I increase the fan speed?

It will run as slow as it can until the temps hit a certain point. Are you sure that you have it plugged into the CPU fan plug and not another fan plug?

Actually, I had it plugged into my nose. How exactly would the motherboard detect 1000 RPM if the fan was not plugged to the correct port?

So, you are saying Intel deliberately packs these CPUs with garbage coolers that can't even cool the chip down?

So far all I've had is one person assume I didn't have the fan plugged into the motherboard and another person tell me to buy a new fan. I really need to know the answer to my question(s) before I buy another fan. For all I know the motherboard will set ANY fan to run at 1000 RPM.

Now its 38 C. Huh?

Back up to 41 C....

Not liking this fan....

Because it will read the RPM of any fan plugged into it period, not just the CPU fan...

I know its plugged into the MOBO but there is more than one spot where you can plug in fans, and only one of them is the CPU fan slot.

The Stock air cooler will take you to about 4.4 on SB. So you shouldn't be having any problems.

There could be alot of things causing this. Bad fan, Bad Mobo Fan Contoller, Bad seat with the thermal paste.

Those temps are still pretty cool since the chips thermal limit is 95c. It will depend on what Intels fan profiles look like on the board it may not speed up till the chip is hotter.

But you wont get much help with that attitude around here good luck.

Hawk, I appreciate that you are trying to help and I was making a joke. I don't have a bad attitude; you are being over-sensitive. I gave you a +1 for trying to help, so I did appreciate that you at least tried to think of something.

There is only one fan plugged into the motherboard, the CPU fan, and it is plugged into the plug labeled "CPU FAN". It is in a test rig; skeletal frame, no panels, no additional fans. There are no additional fans that could be giving a false reading.

It is now running at 1900 RPM. The settings in the "advanced menu" do not actually seem to work, while the settings in the "main menu" actually have an effect. I had to select "Turbo" mode for the fans in "main" as doing this in "advanced" did not actually change anything. I also had to disable some of the settings in "advanced" to get that to work.

My Phenom II 965 idled at about 37 C under similar conditions, so I am not entirely certain of these are good temperatures temperatures. I have no experience with i7. I would think the Phenom II would run hotter being more antiquated architecture.

My main concern is that the temperatures seemed to be jumping around. I presume that to have been the smart fan control asserting itself and have disabled it and will watch the board for a few hours. Just seems like a huge waste of time.

I'm shocked that the fan is actually able to cool it down to 40 C. It looks like something that would have come with a Celeron D.

Sounds like a Bios thing to me. Glad turbo got the fan speed up. I am guessing that the turbo mode is the fan setting for when the CPU goes into turbo mode.

Really chips that have such high thermal limits tend to idle warmer too. The limit on the 965 is 62c as Im sure you know. As it is on SB at 95 thats another 33c of range so it wouldn't surprise me that it idles hotter.

As for stock coolers ya they suck. I mean some of them will let the chip go over thermal limit. It is counter intuitive to think the OEM Fan would let it do that but sometimes they do. When they design that stock fan its for like a stock dell you would get a the computer store, something someone uses to surf the web and read emails, not bench and game with.

I had a core 2 duo that would let the chip float up around max temps before it even began to step the fan up. Its kinda that nature of the beast.

Does it seem like it is adjusting to temp of the CPU now? Give prime 95 a try and see if she speeds up.

Try going into the bios and setting the fan control off. I know with my sisters SB rig, there is an option to just make the fan run at full speed all the time. On her 2400 i5 the fan at full speed is almost silent.
