The mobo is Gigabyte ga-p35-ds3l, I have a pentium 4 (stinks I know) with a jungle512 fan. I just finished putting the system together today.

when I changed the "cpu smart fan mode" to "voltage" it went to 2000+ rpm and then when I changed it to "pwm" it made it to 2600 rpm. it should be about 3500 rpm.

Hi there,

Glad we could help you fix your problem!

:)

Please post a link to your CPU heatsink/fan? You said it was a "Jungle" one?

It looks pretty similar to the standard Intel cooler. I would assume it should work the same.

What makes you think it "should" be about 3500rpm? What temperatures does the BIOS report?

Hey guys since you seem to be familiar with this stuff, I'm not a fan of fans and don't have any in my computer however my parent's computer has this problem where the CPU fan is not spinning as fast it needs to and the temps are at 50ish idle and 65ish under a little load, what program do you guys use to control fan speeds? I tried SpeedFan but it was already set to 100% but it slowed down the fan when I ran the program, I heard of people tweaking it to work and I'm not one of them, lol. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Because on the old system it was usually at 3500rpm, now that the fan is working fine the temperatures are arround 25c.

I don't control my fan I just let it do its thing and my temps run fine, lol. are you sure that its not running at fast enough rpms? if its been going a while it might need a new coat of thermal paste. In my old system my fan was arround 35c but now that I applied a new layer of thermal paste and stuck it in the new system its around 25c... at least I assume its because of the new layer of thermal paste. I'm just a beginner and I'm not for sure, so you would be better off asking someone with more experience. However I just thought I'd give my two cents worth :)

Create your own thread. :)

trnstar, the reason why your fan wasn't spinning at it's maximum RPM is because it'll reve up and down depending on the temperature. This makes the fan as quite as possible.
