Hi, can anyone tell at what avg CPU temp your fan automatically speeds up to max revs?

mine is at max revs from about 35C. is this normal?

thanks.

well that's the problem, it won't lower automatically as it should, after all, it's supposed to be a smart fan connector on my mother board (MSI P965 platinum).

so, i'm wondering do i need to shell out for a new case/fans that would cool it even more. i'm beginning to think the fan control on the MB is dodgy.

EDIT: It's ok, i've found the solution. there was a setting in bios that was disabled.

cheers.
