Windows 7: CPU fan speed

CPU fan speed

Installed a Cooler Master Gemin II S524 cpu cooler yesterday.
The speed has been staying from 450 - 470 rpm. / Temp. 22c - 27c
Is there a program to control the fan speed ?

Sorry no idea on fan speed software, but wow that thing is huge! And pretty cool(no pun...well yea it was intended). Looks like the radiator from a small car, heh.

You can adjust some of the fan settings in your Bios usually. There are also options like speedfan. Just remember, the faster the fan speed the louder it gets.

The program may be misreading your RPM. It says max is 37,500.

Thank's for the quick replies.
Yes, agreed both the cpu and case fan speeds do this when I start the program, did a clear min./max. now looks normal.
So there is no way to increase the cpu speed ?
or is it controlled by a sensor and is increased or decreased by the cpu temp. alone ?

I agree with Britton30 that it is misreading your rpm. Your temps are fine.

Run Intel Burn test on default settings, it will heat up your CPU but keep a careful eye on your temps and fans, the should speed up through the BIOS controls. It may cause a BSOD, but don't worry, it'll restart fine.
