  1. I have a system I use as a server that's in a ac'd room @73 degrees F, but about once a week I find it shutting down on it's own.

    Using SpeedFan 4.28:
    I have 1 temperature that's way too high, but I don't know where that sensor is to figure out what's wrong, and how to fix it. Also, should Fan3 be going as fast as 25k RPM? Suggestions?


    Fan1: 1526 RPM
    Fan2: 0 RPM
    Fan3: 0 RPM
    Fan1: 1940 RPM
    Fan2: 1962 RPM
    Fan3: 28125 RPM
    Fan1: 0 RPM
    Fan2: 0 RPM
    Fan3: 7031 RPM

    Local Temp: 95F
    Remote Temp: 79F
    Temp: 88F
    Temp: 90F
    Temp: 93F
    Remote Temp: 261F
    HD1: 93F

    I have 2 SCSI hard drives on this system...but only see 1 HD temp. Could the 2nd be "Remote Temp"?

    Thanks!!

    Hello! Welcome to TechSpot!

    What are the spec on this server?
    I suggest getting another temp program to compare.
    Does your bios have "Hardware Monitoring" section and what is it reporting?
    Speedfan can be very confussing.

    Fan3: 28125 RPM, 261°f :eek:

    use everest home. I have had no good experience with speedfan. it would show my HDD temp as 255C .. when i check everest.. its 25C so i gues it makes that 25.5C yours would be 26.1 jus touch the top of the hDD and see if its really 261F =P

    let us know your system specs

    my first thought would be that your powersupply is insufficient =[

    LOL If fan 3 was going 28K, it would be lifting off! Sometimes as fans get older, or worse accumulate dust around the shaft they can vary wildly. My chipset fan was running between 2300 and 5600, till I disassembled it and WD40'd the crap out of it. Now it runs consistantly at about 6K.
