    Hi recently my computer has been running a little hot and so I was wondering if anyone can help me out with the settings for speedfan. I have two fans one small and one large yet speedfan only seems to detect one. Any help would be apreciated as I haven't a clue.
    I have attached a speedfan capture (hope it shows up)
    vcore:1.48v
    +12v: 12.14v
    AVcc:3.31v

    Personally, I don't see an issue with your temps. I know speedfan says one of them is high but my laptop says the same thing and I've been fine for a long time. I'm running 7 degrees C hotter than yours is.

    As for detecting the fans...my experience is that speedfan doesn't always detect all of the fans.

    I assume this is a desktop PC. Pop it open and make sure all the fans are running. Make sure your system is running in a ventilated area and not shut inside a computer desk. You could also get a can of AIR and blow out the dust on the fans so they move air more efficiently.

    Is this a home built PC or store bought?

    I''ve used Speedfan and compressed air for a while and that combo works well for me. It's a laptop so I'm not sure how to detect more than 1 fan. Does their website have a forum perhaps (in case you've not already checked?).

    Its a store bought PC. There isn't a forum. I thought the program was more commonly used than it seems to be.I've cleaned the fans and thats cooled it a bit, I just wondered if anyone knew how to make them spin faster. thanks

    It's a very popular program.

    How did you figure it was hot? What's hot? Certainly not the numbers you've posted. I'm currently idling at 44C.

    The trick to Speedfan is trying to figure out what the temps are really representing sometimes. As far as the warning on core you can adjust that warning to a higher value, 50 is a low value (assuming it's an AMD chip). As far as reading fans they have to be plugged into MOBO 3 pin headers. Assuming those temps are correct you are in good shape. The cpu fan speed seems low, but it might a PWM controlled one that will go higher if needed. If you want to be cooler go for more case ventilation (rear exhaust fans). That's usually the easiest and cheapest route. Add some if you have blank areas or get some high end, high cfm replacements.
