    Default Fan Speeds

    Heya, this is my first post so thought i'd say hello first of all....

    i'm having a bit of a weird couple of issues with my cooling...

    I've got a gigabyte K8T850 board and can't control the fan speed in the bios...i've also tried with speedfan and that makes no difference either....and at the moment the fan won't increase from it's idle speed of 2.5k no matter what stress it's under

    i've OC'd my 3500+ to 2.4 and the temps are starting to creep up a bit too much for my liking but can't work out a way of getting it a little bit cooler...

    i must add i'm running the Arctic cooling 64 pro heatsink so i think i'm adequately cooling for what i'm doing...

    any ideas anyone??

    thanks in advance

    ok...me being a muppet and forgot about the heatsink being a low rpm one...:$

    thought i would be able to get the chip a little cooler than that tho...it's not a huge overclock...

    running an 11x 220mhz...

    any help or tips?

    hi there and welcome to the forums

    What voltage have you got on the CPU and what's your loads temp when running something like a Super PI 8MB run?

    just remounted the heatsink after searching through the forums and it's dropped a couple of degrees...

    only hitting 50c now at max load which is a little better....

    not sure what else i can do really....apart from going to the extremes and lapping or trying a different thermal paste..(using the stocl MX1 or whatever it's called which came with the heatsink...)

    i think 50c load with 1.5v is probably about right, do you need 1.5v for 2.4Ghz stability?

    well on my bios settings i can only increase the voltage by 5% 10% or 15% not actual increments of voltage...and so i was a bit dubious about touching the %age ones...so left it at automatic cpu power

    and same for RAM....

    so thats what the voltage said in CPUid...so i just assume thats what the mb thinks i need...

    i've got an antec case with two 80mm case fans fitted...it's a bit crowded in there but haven't got room for the likes of a full server tower etc...

    thanks for the nice welcome

    Do you know which case model?
    Antecs usually have plenty of fan mounts.

    couldn't tell you which one it is unfortunately...can't remember

    but i've used both...one at the front to keep harddisks cooler and one at the rear as an exhaust

    Don't they all have 120mm exhaust fan mounts?
    Agh, you've edited

    The SLK has 120mm fan mounts too doesn't it?

    ah the 1.5V being default leads me to believe you have a newcastle or clawhammer 3500+. This explains a lot, i'll give a quick explanation as to why:

    3500+ NewCastle: 130nm, 1.5V, 512 KB L2, 2.2 GHz, x11, 89 W
    3500+ Winchester: 90nm, 1.4V, 512 KB L2, 2.2 GHz, x11, 67 W

    the newcastle was built using a 130nm process which means the chip is larger thus needs more voltage (1.5v) which equates to using more power (89w) which means for a hotter running chip.
