Windows 7: Fans in the Red Zone

Fans in the Red Zone

I recently had to go into the BIOS and noticed that two of the fans are running at 400RPM and are denoted in red.

I called ASUS, but the rep was clueless.

The computer seems to be fine and this may be something I have never noticed before.

Is it something to be concerned about?

Thanks,

Paul

Check your fan settings in the BiOS.
400 RPM is too low IMHO.
What are your temps in the case?

Thanks for the quick reply.
You're right -I just spoke to Thermaltake and they said the RPM should be 1000.

The CPU Fan is 1232 RPM.
The CHA Fan 1 is 398 RPM.
The CHA Fan 2 is 428 RPM.
CPU temp is 89.6 F.
MB temp is 87.8 RPM.


Do I change the settings in the MB, and if so how?

Thanks,

Paul
