Hi  i have had a problem with a noisey Fan  a fin broke off ,i use XP Home edition

I have replaced the lower DC Brushless  fan, an equivalent from Maplin with a noisey 34+2db and it didnt come with the Tacho yellow wire so i  fitted without it and have black and red in the 3 hole socket!

 

my specs are below:

Intel® Celeron® D Processor 356
(512K Cache, 3.33 GHz, 533 MHz FSB)

I have checked the Bios Health Check in my system, its says CPU is 82F

and rotation is around 1100RPM  

but on the details of the specs that came with the New Fan

it states 3000+10%RPM

After leaving the PC on for over 2 hours now

I have just looked again and Current System temp 28C (82F)

                                              Current CPU Temp 30C    (86F)

                                               System Fan   0  RPM  (possibly because the Tacho is not detected ?)

I am trying to find the Optimal CPU temp would these readings above be in the safe Temp Parameters, if

I have tried CPU-World but dont really quite understand the info.

I would be grateful for any the help, regards Ben.

I'm not sure exactly what you are asking, but you said:

The temps you post are excellent for any computer; the fact you are running XP makes no difference. Your question really is about hardware, not the operating system.

The CPU running at 30°C is excellent.

The system fan not being detected is not a problem, there could be several reasons for that, including how your BIOS is set up, whether you have used a 2-pole case fan on a three pole socket on the mainboard, etc. etc.  If the CPU fan were not running your system would not boot in the first place. 28°C for your box temperature is excellent.
