Question about elevated heat

This is going to sound like a question from the Twilight Zone.

My comp was starting to run hot ( 45 - 55C under normal conditions.).

I was about to open case and do a thorough cleaning, but first cleaned the keyboard thoroughly.

I have been using the comp for over an hour and it now doesn't go over 35C!

I know it has to be a coincidence, Right??!!

That's one of the weirder problems that I've seen, but yeah, I would chalk that up to coincidence.

I knew it was weird.

And yet it is still under 39C - last two hours.

What do you think could have caused the spike and now back to normal?

Still a little warm. Are all your fans working properly?

This is how I adjusted them using AI Utility.

BTW - my side fan is presently not plugged in.

When I opened the case to check for dust, it became unplugged.


After I clean the case, I'll reattach it.

You think 39C is warm?

I have ZERO faith in any Asus programs controlling anything. (AI Utility.)

At the present time I have my fans hook up to 12v fan hubs. They run max. all the time. Some fans you can't really do this without a lot of noise.

If I was going to control fan speed I would use a physical fan controller.
Their are many one can choose from if Googled.

I'm not saying my methods are the only ones. They are the methods that suite me and my systems.

I also don't consider 400 to 600 rpm fast enough for 120 and 140 mm fans.
Example would be you top and bottom fans.

Your cpu at 39C is very good.

Could you correct your system specs.

In my specs.

What do you mean by "correct your specs"?
