yeah, looking back at my active monitor screencap, there's only 1 fan listed. do i need to set up anything special to have the other fans detected?

maybe it doesnt detect the other 2 fans, that is very possible.

hm. i feel nothing when i put my hand over the cpu fan. that's not good, if it should be blowing away. i tried a reenactment. i had a fan blowing right toward me, and i lit a flame torch. sure enough, i got hot. note to self - point fan away. ok kidding, but why the hell is my fan not blowing the air away from the chip? not like i can put the damn thing in upside down, can i? maybe my hs/fan was made by the intel short bus team.

update - just found out the fan blows onto the cpu, so that's fine. and the rear fans don't have pin connectors, hence the 29 and 0 RPM. still want to know what's up though... i'm warm for no apparent reason. any other thoughts would be greatly appreciated. thanks!

thanks for all the help U-TOAST. i'm getting rid of my big *** IDE cables in swapping in some round ones, and may replace the 2 rear stock antec fans for some faster ones. hopefully that will bring it down 3-5C and i'll rest easy.

yeah I do believe my cpu fan blows ON the cpu because I have a smaller fan screwed into the corner of that one blowing down connected to my north bridge fan power cause I don't have a fan for the NB normally. The intake is in the back, sucks in cool air, and the cpu fans blown the cool air onto the hot heatsink. The coolermaster jet shows a diagram of how it works and its blowing air down whereas a fan has a deadspot right in the middle. but thats a whole other story
