I usually have 2 programs that are always running, speedfan and OpenHardwareMonitor.
I use speedfan to control the speed of my cpu fan--It never goes above 30% otherwise.
I use OpenHardwareMonitor to monitor the temperatures.
Speedfan and OpenHardwareMonitor always give different temperatures, with speedfans being significantly cooler, so I go by what the other one says instead.
Today, I decided to get another similar program and compare it to OpenHardwareMonitor to see if there was a difference. The other program I downloaded is CPUID HWMonitor. Again, there is a difference, this time the new programs temps are even higher.
I would go into BIOS to settle this, but I can't.... No prompt comes up, and I've pressed every button/ button combination I've ever heard of and haven't been able to open it.
Also, I put in a new fan in my computer yesterday, in hopes of being able to keep the cpu cooler and not have its fans up so high (Even at 70% it still gets to the max temp of 68°C (Going by OpenHardwareMonitor)). The fan I put in doesn't help any at all, really, but it doesn't go up very high by itself. I also can't control it with any of the programs I have. The slot it is plugged into on my mobo is labeled PCI fan. Any way to control that?
The cpu I'm using, by the way is the Intel Xeon w3550.
