Cpu fan not running fast enough


I recently bought this product:

Zalman CNPS7700-AlCu Oem pack for Intel lga775 : aluminum+copper FHS + 120mm Fan : 1200/2200rpm , double ball bearing , noise 18/27db - for intel Lga775

along with a gpu cooler. The gpu fan is running fine, but my cpu is running at 60-65C when my pc is idling, even if I take the cover off it remains so hot. I have checked all the wires, I can't find any obstructing the fan itself upon the cpu. I was wondering if this is normal or if there is somewhere I can adjust the cpu fan speed that i'm not aware of.

I would appretiate any help.

Kind regards,

This will depend on the motherboard you are using.

however, you need to make sure that the CPU fan lead is plugged into the correct plug on the motherboard... for example, I have an Intel 975xbx motherboard and it has 4 fan plugs, but only one of those is for the CPU. The others are for front/rear/top fans. If the CPU fan is plugged into one of the secondary ports, the CPU fan wont speed up correctly.

Also, some BIOS settings in the motherboard allow you to enable or disable automatic fan speed adjustment, and also set the temperature points.

What mother board should is best for use on this video editing,engineering,and games with better graphics and can also work for more than 18 hours?

The best computer mainboard, would be either an AMD AM3 mainboard made by ASUS. For example ASUS Crosshair IV Formula or ASUS M4A88TD-V EVO/USB3. Or an Intel computer mainboard. ASUS Socket 1156/1155/1366.

Your Pentium Dual-Core E2180 2.0Ghz on the LGA775 socket is not good for Games or video.

The best thing to do is to purchase a new computer system.

Use either AMD Phenom 2 or Intel I5 or I7.
Use a good mainboard as above.
Use a good Graphics card, Nvidia 400 series.
Keep all the components running cool with a case that you like and has place for lots of 120mm or 140mm fans.
Use DDR3 RAM 1333MHz or higher.
Use Cooler Master or Corsair Power Supply.

If however you are wanting a good mainboard to be used with your Pentium Dual-Core E2180 2.0Ghz on the LGA775 socket then click here.

ASUS is very good, all these mainboard on the LGA775 socket are good, choose one that looks good to you and one that you can afford.

Thanking you kindly

Cpu cooling

The ZALMAN CNPS9700 is the best air cooler on the market.It looks cool and is quite easy to install. I have one in my box and I have 34 degrees with an Intel Quad core running 1 Gigahertz over stock.

Suitable CPU air cooler

I suppose you have done your homework as to if u really *need* to buy a new cooler. Is ur CPU getting HOT? what temperatures does it run at? Your choice of cooler depends on what you plan to do with it. Do you plan to overclock your system? I would suggest a Coolermaster stock copper cooling system. Zalman is also good but expensive. But as i said depends on what u wanna do with the system and if u really need that extra cooling if you dont plan to overclock your system.

Video Problems.

well, I suppose it could be the motherboard, though I doubt it. I wonder did you check; the board, processor and graphics card on against the vista HCL (Hardware Compatability List) you should be able to find it on microsofts website. Unfortunately being a 64 bit OS, and considering how new it is, very few devices, software and drivers are actually designed to work on vista yet. I hear alot of complaints about vista not working properly. thruth is vista isn't the problem, other companies didn't keep up. anyway, I hope you can fix it. and honestly I hope it isn't a hardware compatibility issue. Either way Good Luck
