Controlling cpu fan speed
#1
I am trying to speed up my fan a bit but have no idea how to do that. I downloaded SpeedFan and messed with it read guides, etc. but have no luck. no matter what settings i change in it it makes no difference on fan speeds. Here is what i get whe i run speed fan in the log :
(Does the "GiveIO: NO" have to do with input/output meaning that i cant change any speeds?)

Win9x:NO 64Bit:YES GiveIO:NO SpeedFan:YES

It's usually better to mess with CPU fan control in your bios.

i can't change anything in bios does that mean i can't manually change the speeds at all?

make sure that your fan controller is properly plugged in on the motherboard.

If your motherboard has no options, it's likely that it doesn't have true fanspeed control.

Also, in most cases your fan will automatically go run at it's max speed when needed. Generally, unless you manually configured your fan to run slower when you installed it (either through a setup on some of the high-end fan models, or through the bios which you clearly haven't) you won't be able to speed it up beyond that. At least not without hardware modding the fan and pumping more voltage to it, which would just burn out the fan.

well my new pc came with a LOUD CPU Cooler Tongue. It instantly goes into overdrive as soon as I start a game lol. My old CPU Cooler (From my Athlon x2 6000+ ran at around 1300-1500 rpm) my current one (From my new Phenom II X4 980 BE is running at 3400 rpm idle is the Phenom II really that much of a hothead compaired to my old 6000+?)

there is something really wrong there. I overclocked my cpu to 3.7 GHz to match yours and ran pcsx2 (Star Ocean 3) at 6x native with only the recommended hacks and MTVU hack (getting full speed by the way) and my cpu temps don't go above 60 C and the fan is running pretty quiet. My Gpu though goes to 88 C and it's fan is running a little louder but I'm sure its nowhere near 3400 rpm. maybe your voltage is high (I'm getting 1.4V) I don't think that your cpu fan is any different than mine. Are u sure that you have some thermal paste applied to the cpu chip ( and maybe even on the heatsink) cause if you don't then your cpu might be overheating) By the way what temperatures are you getting. When idle I get about 49 C at 3.7GHz and 58 C under load.

You guys never heard or used Speenfan before?

for some reason even with speedfan I can't manually change cpu fan speeds. With AMD Vision Engine Control Center I can manually control gpu fan speed but not cpu and even with AMD Overdrive I can't control either cpu or gpu fans.
Speedfan only lets me monitor the rpms on the fans but not change them unless I don't know how to use it...

Speenfan? Nope, not ever before you mentioned it. Tongue
