I am having a fan issue with a Sony Vaio desktop that I already have posted on seemingly every computer message board (including this one) on the net with no solution. The BIOS settings for the fans seem a little high on my computer. I have a feeling this is my problem.


Unfortunately, Sony locks the BIOS.

I am curious what the BIOS RPM fan ettings are on other people's computer.

Mine are at around 2,200 for both with seems high.

Can yours be changed?

I dont have a vaio, I tend to use custom jobs. If your BIOs is indeed locked, and you want your fan turned down (you will need to get a good temp monitoring software so you dont turn it down to much) you can invest in a third part fan controller like this Just be sure to monitor your temps to make sure that you dont turn it down to low.

Mine is an all in one computer. I am not not sure I could use something like this on mine.

Is there such a thing as a USB fan controller?

you dont have an extra optical drive bay? if not they make ones that will connect to your PCI slots in the back as well. Ive never heard of a USB one, though it may be out there.
