Default Why is my fan running so high/fast?

I just reformatted my computer and prior to that, I think my fan(s) weren't running this fast..

The only times it doesn't do this is 5 seconds and then until Windows screen of booting up.
After that, it goes so fast. And as you can see, the temps are pretty normal? So I dunno what's the dealio here.

Hello,

Make sure that you've installed the latest chipset drivers for your motherboard.

fyi, the fan sounds really loud too, so if u are basically saying that it might be a mis-reading, maybe that is not the case.

i tried to update it, but apparently it says that there is a current driver there and i have to uninstall it.

i tried doing so by uninstalling nvidia ide and some other nforce driver (not graphics or display drivers) and yet the new chipset won't install.
