Also is there any way to speed it up? It usually runs at about 800rpm, on the box it says it runs at 2000rpm.

Hey,

It isn't normal for a CPU fan to stop spinning while a computer is switched on. Make sure the connection for the fan is secure.

If you are wanting to speed the fan up then there is a small program called SpeedFan

Visit the site http://www.almico.com/sfdownload.php and in the download section you will see the program available for download.

Let me know how you get on :whistling:

On your PC look for something that monitors temperature of the CPU- if your rig is running cold enough, it might not need to have the CPU fan on all the time, hence why your fan would be turning off every now and then

It's likely your fan is only spinning at a speed it need to keep it cool, to keep power + noise levels low. Most newer processors have this support, I use it personally. Mine is spinning about 2500rpm, when the maximum speed of this fan is 6000rpm.

make sure you remember which fan you have connected your CPU fan to- if you ever get a fan monitoring software, it might not see one under the CPU fan and you might be turning one fan up where u dont need it!
