    I am concerned because my CPU (athlon xp 2000) is running hot (between 61C and 67C), and yet my fan is only running at around 2000rpm tops, when it says on the web that it can run at 4500rpm (coolermaster DP5-7H53F). How do I change the rpm? I have a Asus A7V 333 motherboard, any help?

    I believe the fan speed on that one is determined by a thermistor built into the heat sink. When the CPU gets hotter the fan speed will increase. Try stressing the processor with a benchmark and see if the speed of the fan increases. 61C isn't that hot for an Athlon.
