I have a Core 2 Quad Q6600 (2.40 GHz) with core voltage 1.200 V (if it helps), on the motherboard Asus P5KPL-CM. So today, when I started my computer, it suddenly showed me that the CPU temperature is too high.
I checked it in BIOS, and it shows there that the temperature is around 98 °C. When I got into Windows, and checked the temperature with a few programs, they showed me 75-80 °C. I checked the speed of the fan using SpeedFan program, and it showed me that the speed of the "problematic" fan is actually 49%. So I lifted it up to 100%. And then, the temperature dropped to 71-81 °C (still high though). But after every restart, the speed of the fan goes back to 49%. So what's the problem? And why does the speed always reset?
