power supply fan

  1. i have had my power supply for around 4 months, but when i use asus probe to monitor temps and fan speed i get these values

    cpu temp = 43c/ 109f
    mb temp = 41c/105f
    cpu fan = 4115
    power fan = below threshold
    chassis fan = below threshold

    i have been having green/purple flickering while playing games recently and i have been told it is most likely a overheating problem, can anyone help me.

    Open cpu, get rid of ALL dust in fans etcm with compressed air.

    I wouldn't worry about the fans being "below threshold", many case fans run at low RPMs to reduce noise. power supply fan speeds often times run faster/slower depending on system temps.

    if those temps are accurate then your CPU is not overheating, but it would appear that asus probe does not display your GPU temps. an overheating video card could cause the flickering.

    you can remove the side panel from your case and position a small desk/table fan to blow cooler air into the case (especially to your video card). if the flickering stops, then you pretty much know that it's a poor airflow problem in your case. are there any fans in your case that either push or pull air near the video card? and if not, is there a place to add one?

    the flickering problem could also be cause by a low quality power supply.
