I have a new system, a MicroCenter Powerspec B819 with an Intel DP67DE board and i5 chip, and the fans run at full speed all the time.
I put in an SSD which is incorrectly reporting it's temp at 128C. I know nothings wrong with the drive, but I'm wondering if it's interfering with my ability to control the fan speed.
I've installed Intel Desktop Utilities, I've update my BIOS to BAP6710H.86A.0067.2011.0526.1448. The Desktop Utilities program tells me that all temps are low - Processor 32, PCH 48, Memory 32, VR 29, other HD 30. It's just the SSD that is over threshold.
So is that drive keeping the fans from spinning down? Or is there a setting in BIOS I need to adjust to get them to adjust? This noise is driving me nuts!
