Repost from another forum I go to, sorry for the bad language:

Okay I'm getting infuriated at this point. I have an A8AE-LE aka Amberine M SB400 (aka *BLEEP*ing Rare Proprietary Motherboard Don't Even Ask About Support Like BIOS Updates!) with wonky DME1737 sensors that don't filter the extreme amounts of noise. This causes the CPU fan to randomly ratchet up to ~4600RPM and the case fan to go up to ~2500RPM AND THEN STAY THERE UNTIL THE ENTIRE COMPUTER IS POWERED OFF.

Note the thermodynamically-impossible peaks and dips in the temp readings; the real readings are the flat line. If one of those peaks were real, say a rise; the machine would halt instantly and likely burst into flame. If the dip was real, same again minus the flames and also the Laws of Thermodynamics would have been made a sad mockery.

It used to be that it might randomly happen after a few hours of operation, now it's redlining the fans within 5 minutes of Windows startup at ~75% probability!

Unfortunately the BIOS has user-control of fan speeds locked out; *BLEEP* you HP and your Mommy-Knows-Best attitude!

what does a good voltmeter report on your voltage rails during operation

might be a bad power supply?

No. Try not. Do... or do not. There is no try.

No voltmeter on hand, but these readings are a mess! Maybe it is a bad PSU, figures HP would be cheap about making this puter. $800 in 2k6 dollars too, so they got their huge gob of profit!

software measurements have been shown to be unreliable, speedfan especially so

doublecheck with everest

voltmeter is best, they are cheap

have you made any changes/upgrades to the computer

I once heard a story of a premium home builder who built a budget house for a lady, after she moved in she called him back and said look how that floor is sagging under my baldwin grand piano.

Got a freeware link to Everest, or will AIDA32 work okay?

EDIT: I bought a Geforce 6600 the day I got the compy, no problems with it, games like UT2k4 run slick as glass.

No reply? This sucks and is getting maddening. I'm seriously considering unplugging the fan considering I've never seen the core temp above 50C even under prolonged high load at low (1000rpm) fan speed.

Well isn't that nuts. I uninstalled Speedfan several days ago and haven't had the fan problem since! LOL

PC Wizard 2008 is the better choice. I'd manually check the voltages from the PSU with a multimeter with and without a load.
