CPU fan seems to be on max all the time. Sounds like a small jet between my legs. Not a good thing for a recording studio.

Has anyone experienced fan speed problems with this CPU?

If so, is there a fix?

Do you have the fan plugged into your board or into a 4pin molex? Also do you have cool n quiet enabled?

I assemble a system with the components below using 8 GB of DDR3 memory. The CPU fan runs in the 4000 - 5000 rpms. CPU temps are in 42 - 46C range. It also, has some odd beeps or tones every now and then. I thought it maybe an alarm, but the processor is running well under the alarm of 60C.

GIGABYTE GA-MA790XT-UD4P AM3 DDR3 AMD 790X ATX AMD Motherboard
AMD Phenom II X4 955 Black Edition Deneb 3.2GHz Socket AM3 125W Quad-Core Processor
Arctic Silver 5 Thermal Compound

I build an identical system excpet DDR2 am2+ socket, and AMD Phenom 3.0GHz processor, and the fans runs around 2000 rpms.

I would like to know if anyone comes up with a solution.

Thanks

Stock Cooler?
Properly Seated?
good thermal inteface material?
proper application of TIM?

power supply? Brand? Wattage? Amps? Age??

Fan is plugged into mobo.

I'll check to see if Quiet n Cool is enabled?

Not a lap top.

Stock Cooler? Yes
Properly Seated? Yes
good thermal interface material? Yes, AMD.

proper application of TIM? Don't know what that is.

PSU ... Thermaltake 1000W.

This PC is New, I just built it. Asus M3N-HT Deluxe Mempipe Mobo, XFX GF9800GTX graphic card, 8Gig Kingston Ram.

Sorry, my questions were more geared towards mickfields, but the same info is helpful from you as well.

TIM is Thermal Interface Material, since he was using AS5 I asked if he had properly applied it, so I assume that you are using the pre-aplied goop on the stock cooler.

I hope that CnQ is working, because the rpms you are reporting along with the temperatures all seem very high, so I'd say something is amiss somewhere, 1000w should be sufficient, and even if it's not delivering rated power, should still be plenty, can't fault temps too much on that. can you post a picture of your case internals? see if theres an airflow problem??


Wait, you just had your CPU replaced via AMD RMA, did they ship you a whole new box? or a tray CPU, in otherwords, when you plugged the new CPU in, did you use the original cooler, with the original thermal interface material (TIM)? if so, I'd consider replacing the TIM with some new stuff. those pre-applied pads are typically a one shot, one kill solution, once you replace the CPU, or remove the heat sink, you need to reapply the TIM. if that;'s the case, run down to a local shop, get some goup, I'd suggest some Arctic Silver 5 (AS5) as most shop will have it, but the regular cheap white goup would probably work so long as you don't plan on overclocking.

If they sent you a new HSF with the CPU, then disregard the above, and see my initial request for an image.

Thanks for the input IM,

Yes, AMD sent me the whole new box.

You've got me mixed up with the other guys rpm and temp. I don't know what my rpm or temp is. All I know is that the CPU fan is louder than I've experienced in past builds. This is my first quad.

I don't have an airflow problem. I'm using a Antec P193 case. http://www.antec.com/Believe_it/product.php?id=MTgxNg== It's over-sized, it has 4 fans in it, one is 200mm. I have all the fans set on low. The PSU is even isolated from the rest of the goodies. There are 3 other fans...PSU fan, video card fan and the CPU fan.

Your thoughts are welcome.
