Hot air from fan over cpu

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

i just installed 6 fans in my case 3 in the front 1 in the back and two on top the one over the cpu i felt is blowing pretty hot air but my cpu temp while gaming is only 60c to 65c or lower i just wanted to know if this was normal. 

thanks

Very normal. 40c already feels like "pretty hot air", your body is basically useless for probing computer temperatures.

Always use a monitoring software, instead of going by your feelings. HwInfo64 is a really popular one.

Did you use fan splitters or fan hubs, instead of manually filling each fan header on the motherboard? Then it is normal, as the slots that are empty on the motherboard report 0 rpm.

but will the fan splitter limit rpm to a low number 

no, it will only show the rpm number of a single fan, but that is all. All the fans will still be as fast as they would.

BIOS is not really stressing system. Like at all.

Will smart fan still work with the fan splitter?

Yes.

 

Overall, what you are experiencing is everything working as they should. I would be more worried if fan on CPU cooler wouldn't move hot air off the cooler.
