anybody plz confirm my previous question...

Those temps are low so it's still on idle. need to get to above 50C or so to speed up the fan on most standard Bios settings.

HWMonitor will list min and max CPU fan speed.

The utility Fanspeed shows min and max by hovering the curser over fans. I believe it's an older utility and not as detailed as HWMonitor.

You can go to BIOS or dowload speedfan to monitor the fan speed of the cooler actually. Then you can play around with the setting to see if the fan is moving up and down.

Forgot to mention, the rig I'm using to encode a movie is an old XP machine, with single core processor. Pentium 4 Prescott Core (P4). They run hot!
