Windows 7: Fans Always Spinning @ Max

Fans Always Spinning @ Max

About a week ago I installed a new motherboard, graphics card, power supply, and more RAM. (I've got my profile on here updated with the parts list I believe?). I'm pretty certain I have downloaded all the up-to-date drivers, however, my fans are constantly running at full speed. I think the culprit may be the one over the CPU, but I'm not certain. The forums have been great help earlier with Windows 7 not booting properly.

What checks and ideas do y'all have for me?

Thanks!

As far as the case fans, how are they powered? If you have connected them to a molex connecter from the PSU, they are going to run full speed all the time. If you have them connected to the motherboard, most boards have settings in bios that enable you to somewhat control the fan speed and almost every motherboard has settings for the CPU fan. Normally you set a minimum CPU temp. The fan will spin slower until it nears that temp, then speed up. You may want to download a CPU temp monitoring program to keep watch on CPU temps. I use Core Temp. Then you will be able to see not only your CPU temps, but be able to regulate your CPU fan speed in bios better.

Fans should be controlled by the settings in the BIOS, assuming you have options and controllable fan headers. If the HSF on your CPU is running at full speed all the time, check your temps.

Sorry for the delayed response; been slammed at my other job and haven't really had a chance to play around with the computer. What is a good temperature to be at?

EDIT: The fans are powered through the motherboard.

If the fans are plugged into the fan headers on the motherboard, you should have some options in bios to control the fans. You may have options like a target temp. When the cpu gets to that target temp the fans speed up. If they are plugged into the PSU, they are going to run 100% all the time.

Try to dowload speedfan or go to BIOS to set up the gan and you should be ok.

WMC and spinning up HD
So my TV Recording HD spins up as the PC wakes up but it takes ~15s to completely re-mount itself. Prob is, WMC seems to not know about this and a scheduled recording task fires immediately, no waiting for nothing and goes bad. How have you folks dealt with this? Other than telling the patient...

CPU fan not spinning
I've recently purchased an Asus P5G41T-M LX motherboard. I got an intel E6500 CPU for it. When i got it all set up, and turned it on, the BIOS alerted me with a CPU fan error. I opened the case and saw that while the chassis fan was working at full speed, the cpu fan was not so much as twitching....
