I'm trying to problem solve an issue with my PC suddenly turning off
Initially I thought it was maybe the video card but now edging to the CPU
Running SpeedFan no matter the CPU temperature (going up to 70 degrees) the reported fan speed always hovers around 800-900 RPM and never more
First question - is SpeedFan reliable?
Second questions - how to solve?
The fan is plugged into the correct jumper on the MB and is a stock Intel heatsink
I'm not running intensive stuff like the latest games, just web work so mysql queries, watching videos etc so the temperature the CPU is running at it a bit worrying - everything in the case was bought new in the past year or so (bar the video card which is about 10 years old!)
Gonna reseat the CPU tomorrow with fresh thermal paste
This has only started happening the past few weeks or so with no changes in use
Even the chassis fans never go over 1000 rpm
