Question Was wondering about when my fan should kick in...

Hi guys,

I was checking over my BIOS when I noticed that my CPu fan was set to kick in at 48c and go to medium speed, then when at 60c it should go at fast speed.

My question is this: Are these speeds correct? I know they are default, but we are experiencing bloody hot weather here and the fan inside my system really bugs the crap out of me when I am trying to concentrate. Should I set it to higher? Would that be wise?

Ok mate, thanks -

I was hoping that it was on par with the rest - the old girl doesnt like it this hot.

I am in the midlands and I tell no lie when I say that I have not seen a cloud in 3 days. Apparently tomorrow is even hotter (they say 35c) plus humidity levels double,
