My Girlfriends processor FAN is spinning way to fast. The computer is detecting it and is turning off the FAN. When i disable the safety settings of the fan in the bios settings, the fan keeps, well.. spinning (duh). Problem is, why is the fan spinning so fast? Anyway to make this normal? My bet the fan is getting way to much power, any suggestions?

Thanks, Skyrider

Most likely it's designed to spin at that speed and, being a mere human, you can't judge the speed of something when it's spinning at thousands of RPM.

Actually, there are programs to change the speed. I found one :), yet the problem is that the fan only changes It's speed when the program is running. And this FAN got provided when my girl bought the PC, which is odd. Why does a computer seller gives a fast spinning FAN which is not correct?

Heh, let me change of what i wanted to say. The fan is "spinning" way to fast then it normally should, about 2 times as fast.

The size is as a normal fan. I'd say about the same size as a processor, and the height? about 2cm orso. As said, a normal fan.

The fan will be rated to run at a set RPM at a set power rating. The power for a normal fan is 12V, no higher. If you reduce the power, you reduce the RPM. That is how fan controller software and hardware works. Usually a fan controller (hardware) can adjust the power from 7V to 8V.

But no, your fan is not actually running 'too fast'. If you turn off the automatic speed adjustment, it will be supplied with the full 12V and will spin at it's rated RPM. Not too fast, just what it's supposed to do.

If it's too loud, replace the fan or get a fan controller. If it's not too loud, you don't actually have a problem.

I think my fan is running too fast.. Why else would the safety control disable the fan? If i disable the safety in BIOS, the fan keeps running.
