Question about Computers & Internet
When it comes to computers and changes in system heat, the very first thing I always tell folks is to clean your computer. Dust is one of the best insulators out there so get the dust out, drop the computer's running temperature. (Oh.. and please don't use a regular vacuum cleaner unless you like dead motherboards!!)
I've come across this fan issue a couple of times now. Barring a dusty computer, it's most likely that your new hotter system is running at the same temperature as the fan setting on your motherboard. The X4 Phenom runs hotter than the X2 220 by only a slight margin but that's all it takes. I'm assuming you're comparing these at default speeds as when you overclock, your base temperatures all go out the window.
There are two solutions to this, up the temperature range of your fans or cool down your system. If your system is already running at 50C or hotter, you'll need to look at some combination of reducing internal clutter (blocks or diverts air flow), getting higher CFM fans (though not necessarily noisier.. there's some quiet fans out there), or even changing your case for one that pushes high air flow.
If your system is already running sufficiently cool, your may simply want to increase the fan temperature value in the BIOS/UEFI.
There's a bunch of good freeware tools out there to monitor your system temperatures like HWMonitor or AIDA64.
Hope this helps some.
