Please post a screenshot or a snipping tool image of the SpeedFan temperatures.
Every expansion slot, every device or controller on the motherboard has IRQ associated with it. Everytime one of these needs to communicate with the CPU a interrupt request occurs. So you can imagine why you see so many IRQs.
If you believe that there is a problem with a IRQ check in the Device Manager to see if there are any yellow warnings or red errors.
Open the Device Manager, click/tap on View, select Resources by type, then Interrupt Request (IRQ).

Thanks for the reply. Here are my snips... at rest, and then Playing a game.
I understand that IRQs are hardware lines over which devices send interrupt signals to the microprocessor. The interrupt signal is sent to the processor requesting it to temporarily stop a running a program, and allow another program, an interrupt handler, to run instead. Lines are numbered, and assigned by number to the various devices. Some devices share one IRQ line.
The question here is what one device needs 457 unique lines assigned to it? In my system the Advanced Configuration and Power Interface (ACPI) which controls my temp sensors, and fans among other things thinks that it needs to interrupt the processor SO much that it wants 457 lines to do it? That just blows my mind. I've never seen such a thing in any previous version of Windows or any other OS, not that I was looking for it... but I would have noticed.
I must be doing something wrong with the snips here, but the links work.
Oh, it says I am not allowed to use the image extension on this community. ok
