Hi 

My CPU fan has been running high even when i have just switch it on. I have checked for virus/malware. I have started the PC in just safe mode just in case i have a corrupt program.

Is it the heatsink and fan that needs to be replaced? Its the same heatsink & fan that came with the cpu.

Below is my PC spec.

Is it possible that your HSF needs to be cleaned??? These OE fans run at high speeds to flow sufficient air and they can draw in a lot of dust.

Does your mobo BIOS have an adjustment for the fan speed? If so something may have caused it to reset to 100%. See if there is an option to lower the fan speed percentage and keep an eye on the core temp of the CPU to be sure you're not running above 55C under max load.



-------------------------

Building a reliable PC involves more than just assembling the parts. You need to be able to configure all of the BIOS settings appropriately. This can be quite involved and frustrating as it can require a lot of trial and error with stress testing. It is however often the only means to get a 100% reliable PC.

your cpu voltage is to high that's why it's hot, it need to drop between 1.125 and 1.4 max, so if your cpu is overclocked that's maybe the reason why it's hot. Look in your bios and try to put everything at default settings.

That seems right for the stock HSF assembly. It is a tiny fan cooling top down, so it has to spin quite quickly. Do take a can of compressed gas and blow it out really good.
