1. Custom
2. Motherboard, CPU, and CPU fan are a few months old. The two hard drives are one year old and maybe three or four years old for the other one. The video card is about a year old. Everything else is a couple years old to a few years old.
3. ATX Mid Tower, I believe. (I'm not sure which model exactly)
4. Not on hand. I'll have to look for it.

So it is a kind of a rebuild – :
1- Did you put it together –
2- How many Fans
3- What is Model & MFG of Power Supply
4- How many PCI expansion slots – Report seems/looks strange -
5- Do you have a [Temp/Probe Monitor] Utility already installed – [One that may have been on Motherboard CD- If you do – then that may be the reason for the intermittent Fan RPM Readings- Having 2 Utilities running at same time will dork up these average type readings –

This will be my last post today – I have a lot to look at & figure out – here

1. Not really. My uncle put it together, but I'll try to answer these questions as best I can.
2. As far as I can tell, only three. Power supply fan, CPU fan, and video card fan.
3. 400W Hercules
4. Sorry, I don't understand what you mean. I'm not familiar with the term PCI expansion slots.
5. No, I don't.

Ok – Reviewed your previous Posts – Is this same PC as referred to in previous Posts – Also did you replace Power Supply as indicated in your previous Post –

Also is this the Pc that you are currently using – While Online & Posting with –

It appears that you may have a problem with [CPU Temperature] or with the [CPU Temp Monitor] Circuit – But if you are using the [Same PC] – I am not sure –

I thought that this Post would be just – [Some Added Info] on [Cooling] & [Fan Speed] –
_______________________________________________________________

I am still looking for info on your PC – Need better/more info on [Case] & [Power Supply] - Below are some [Motherboard Links] – Have you located your [Motherboard Installation CD] – When you do – Browse thru it – and see if there is [Probe Monitor] Utility on it for measuring Temperatures & Voltages – Do you have the [Manual] for Motherboard –

I will post more information on – [PC Cooling] – And some associated problems that may apply to you – In the meantime – Keep me Posted on any new Info about PC –

Like I said – It looks like a Temperature problem exists – but if it is [Operational] than we don’t want to [Break it] -

See Links below – [Motherboard info]

- No, I didn't replace the power supply. I've had the same for a while.
- Yes, it is the same PC that I have used and posted with.
- There isn't much information I can give you on the case to the specifics. There are many, many ATX cases out there. This is just one of the typical ones; it's nothing special.
- I haven't found my motherboard CD yet or the manual.

- One last thing. This computer has been functional, even with that 'problem' that has been bothering me these past few days. At Friday, I kept it running for over twelve hours. For Saturday, I kept it running for about fourteen hours. If there really was a temperature problem with the CPU, wouldn't something have happened already? By the way, I occasionally feel the temperature on my case (particularly around the CPU area), and it's been the same before-and-after I had any signs of a potential problem.

Yes – That is what I was saying – It appears to be a problem – but may just be a [Measurement] Problem and not a [Real Temperature] Problem – You are right – Something should have happened by now –

You indicated a possible problem – and I was giving you a tool to get a closer view – But [Everest] may not be compatible with your Motherboard – That is why I was trying to research – I just wanted the Power Supply & Case INFO to verify [Wire Interfacing] between [Motherboard] to [Case] & [Power Supply] –

I just wanted you to be aware of [Temperature] – If you locate your CD – It may have a Compatible Measuring Utility that you can Install – And maybe – you can monitor this –

You have enough info – So we can close this discussion for now – Good Luck –

Edit Note-11-27-2005 - Please Post if you have more questions or more info on this [FAN/Temperature Issue]

Have a Nice Day –
