    Controlling AMD Phenom Temps

    Ive recently build a new PC with a Phenom 955 BE.

    However, my CPU fan is unbeleivably noisy. IVe never seen anything like it. I can udnerstand when I load Call of Duty, but in desktop? The temps are in the 30 so thers no reason for it to run this loud.

    Im using a gigabyte board and tbh, ive seen nothing in bios to help me fix this.


    Got speedfan, but I cant even see where you change the speed of the fan....

    Re: Controlling AMD Phenom Temps

    Just get a cheap 120mm tower cooler, anything really will do, or an arctic freezer, that should be quieter. Personally I've got a xigmatek HDT-S1283 and it'sall but silent and the temps are 44C full load with a considerable overvolt.

    Re: Controlling AMD Phenom Temps

    Some of the Gigabyte AMD boards have really rubbish fan control for some unknown reason. By rubbish I mean it completely doesn't work.

    My Desktop #2 has exactly this issue, so I moved the fan off the motherboard and onto a molex 5V adapter.

    Whats the easiest fan/heatsink to fit to stop this problem?

    Will i need both or will a new fan added onto the AMD stock heatsink sort it?

    Re: Controlling AMD Phenom Temps

    You must have a dodgy fan as I used the stock cooler without any adjustments on my asus board with no noise problems.

    Try a zalman fanmate 2
    http://www.quietpc.com/gb-en-gbp/pro...ories/fanmate2
    Just cut the one connector to accept the PWN header of the fan and your away.IMHO The stock cooler is a good cooler for a freebie.

    Alternatively get a Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro Rev2 £16.

    how will that help? sorry im a noob. Changing the power connector will help control the fan speed cause the mobo is sh!t at it?

    Re: Controlling AMD Phenom Temps

    You have a 4 pin fan socket plugged into the motherboard. The motherboard is currently spinning it at max RPM.

    You could plug the 4 pin fan socket straight into the PSU or a molex adapter, and it will also spin at max RPM.

    If you get one of the adapters I or dfour recommended then you can plug the 4 pin fan socket into that, and it will provide a lower voltage, thus decreasing the fan speed.

    Some boards just don't control fan speed at all - for whatever reason, they just run at 100% all the time. I suspect you have one of them.
