How do I set my cpu fan to run at full speed?

March 4, 2011 at 02:50:54
Specs: Windows 7, AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 4600+ 2.40 GHz
On the box it said the fan could run around 5000 rpm max. I've tried several times to have it run on that speed (through speedfan and BIOS) but it still runs around 2000 rpm. The computer crashes everytime I play Sims 3 due to overheating.

"The computer crashes everytime I play Sims 3 due to overheating"

At what temperature does it crash?

If it's getting that hot, it seems more like the heatsink and/or thermal material wasn't installed properly. Make sure you've installed it as per these instructions:
