    Question cpu fan low


    While booting, a 'Warning! Your CPU Fan is low' appeared.

    uh, is that the exact message? If thats engrish it could mean perhaps the fan is clogged up and so isnt spinning so fast, or else that you have heating issues. you may wat to try a bigger fan. (assuming its monitoring software)

    Not really sure how this is a Windows issue, so moving to Cooling forum (hey I didn't even know we had a cooling forum )

    i am completely surprised this isnt the only thread in it too.

    I think they should incorporate it in with a couple of others into the PC building/modding forum.

    If your useing a heatsink that comes with an Intel process then that could happen cause they don't run as fast as other ones.
