Hi, I have an AMD X6 1055t and I'm wondering if it's normal to have a fan speed of 135000rpm for this processor. It gets quite annoying since the fan makes loud noise although it keeps the core cool at about 20C. The SpeedFan software gives me these followings:

Fan 1: 51 rpm
Fan 2: 135000 rpm

Temp 1: 33C
Temp 2: 37C
Temp 3: -128C
Core: 20C

Do I need to get a new fan to keep it quiet? Or is there another solution?

I think thats a glitch in the monitoring software you using! I highly doubt the fan is running 13500RPM :thumbsup:

Dirty/plugged heatsinks and cpu fan will make the cpu run hotter, that will cause the motherboard to run the fan at a higher speed making it run louder. Have you checked the heatsink/fan to see if it's clear of dust bunnies?

That new of of a chip I doubt dust bunnies are the problem, and those are all good. Is the heatsink fan a variable control fan? (4 pin) if so, make sure the fan control is turned on in the BIOS, and try using a different fan controller to turn it up and down. If its not a 4 pin, you can usually pick up aftermarket manual fan controllers that slide into a 5.25 inch or 3.5 inch bay, that you can plug one or more fans into and control their speed by a knob or automatically by temperature.
