Windows 7: How can I maximize fan speed?

How can I maximize fan speed?

Hello!
I just noticed that my GPU and CPU are above 60 degrees C. I tried to use SpeedFan and all of my 3 coolers were @ 0 RPM. I guess it doesn't support my motherboard. I don't really get well with hardware. If you answer, can you be more specific, please.
Thank you!
PS: I just joined this forum and I suppose you can see my specs, 'cause I typed them into those boxes when I registered.

GPU temps can run into the 80s when gaming. Your temps aren't alarming. You could try something like HWInfo32 to see if it recognizes your fans and their RPM.

Have you confirmed by eyeball that your fans are in fact spinning?

Yes, my fans are spinning. I noticed from some time now that my notebook is getting very hot quickly (almost burning) if I put it on some straight surface when I'm on High Performance.

@ignatzatsonic: Where can I check if my fans are recognized with that software? It's a little to much complicated for me.

I'd at least look at what HWInfo says.

What are you doing when the notebook is "very hot"? Idling? Gaming? Reading this forum?

Well, I just switch to Power Saver and get it a little high up in the air.

A couple of hours ago it just restarted and when I touched the back of it, it was impossible to keep my hand on it.

You need to find out your fan RPMs. For all you know, they are already running at max speed.

To repeat myself:

I'd at least look at what HWInfo says.

I answered your questions. As I said, that program kinda beats me.

Well, I sorted that software out and this is what it says. I just attached and image. Now I keep it in the air, that's why temps are good.
