|I recently got a new system. It's packing an AMD Phenom II X4 925 CPU running at 2.8ghz.|
When I was checking the system out using SiSoft SANDRA, and opened up the motherboard properties, it told me two things:
a) I had a system fan spinning at 86RPM, which it said was failing.
and b) The VCore was "higher than maximum". It reports it at 2.16v, and a website I found says 1.5v is "normal".
Also, the system temperature is "idling" (just at the desktop with nothing running) at 36C. With World of Warcraft running in the background, and Firefox, it is running at 45C.
The same website as above reports the max operating range at 55-71C.
The CPU fan is spinning at 4,167RPM, and the board temp is currently 47C, and the CPU temp is 42.50C, and CPU2 reports as 46C!
I am new to Quad-Core Processors, but these numbers scare me. Should they? Should I pack this up and return it to the store I bought it at?
I'm going to ask a dumb question, but 86RPM (was 69 in idle) is a fan barely operating right?
How should I interpret this? Thank you for your time.
