Okay having a very annoying issue with win10 as of late and its been baffling the heck out of me, my CPU fan without any good reason speeds up every so often in windows 10.

It doesnt do it in Linux, I have tried an array of software removals, virus scans, system shutdowns, cleaning dust out my system but for some confounded reason it only does it in windows 10 with little to no reason.

I can eliminate its my CPU, sure its a stock intel cooler but if it was a fault with my cooler dont you think it would effect linux as well?

I can eliminate my antivirus, I had panda free antivirus and removed it... installed another AV (avira) but still the issue comes with no explanation.

I have checked for steam running in the background, checked off any apps that might cause this in my system tray, turned off cortana, everything under the sun but still cannot figure this one out.

Perhaps windows 10 hates me...

I think you should download Core Temp: http://www.alcpu.com/CoreTemp/

And have a look at what the temperature of your CPU is when you hear the fan speed up, as well as what the load percent is on all the cores. This will tell us if there's a workload causing this.

 

Additionally, have a look at the resource monitor built into Windows when this happens, and have your processes sorted by CPU usage, the highest being at the top. This will point out what process is causing the workload. You can open Windows Resource Monitor with Windows Key+R to open the Run Dialog, then type in resmon.exe and hit enter.

 

I SUSPECT that it's probably just the automated tasks that run in Windows 10, like Windows Update background tasks, svchost operations, and such. Mine does the same thing, getting itself hot with 50-100% CPU usage from these tasks every now and then.

Another good option as far as monitoring both the fan(s) plus core temperature data and other bits is SpeedFan.

 

If your fans are speeding up, but then returning to normal speed after a period, my guess is that Win10 is exploiting some features, e.g., automatic speed control, that your prior OS did not.

I prefer this tool as it records the max temps also::  http://www.cpuid.com/softwares/hwmonitor.html

Normally desktop temps shouldn't exceed:
CPU - 60ºC
GPU - 80ºC
HDD and other components - 40ºC

 

But, if the fan is speeding up - it's likely that the temp of the CPU has only increased a little.

Then the fan will cool it down and then the fan will slow back down.

 

You'll have to look for programs that are using the CPU at that time

Go to the Performance tab in Task Manager (details view), and click on Resource Monitor at the bottom of the windows

Then click on the CPU tab and see what's using the most CPU when the fan starts speeding up.

As I sit here typing, my system turns the fan on/off as I work.

If you're worried, set the temp monitoring software to give you an alert if the temps get too high.

Good luck!
