My computer case is really crammed, and because of that, the temperatures inside my case are pretty high, to compensate for that, my cpu fans run at a really high rate, causing a lot of noise (which I can deal with). My question is regarding the speed of my CPU fans. They run normally at 3000rpm when it is not too hot (ie 20C) and when the temperatures get hot (ie 27c), the fan speeds usually goes up to 3500-3700rpm. When I play a really graphics intense game, the speeds usually goes up to 4116rpm (which I presume is the max speed). My question is, are these speeds safe for 24/7 use? My laptop and other computer run at fan speeds no where near as high as the one i'm asking about, but that is only because they are not really stuffed..

The fan running full speed shouldn't hurt it.

My CPU fan has been running full speed 24/7 for over a year with very little off time.

Thanks, btw can you tell me what speed your fan runs at (rpm wise) I just want to compare.
