# Z600 - Chipset Fan Always Running on High RPM

Q: Z600 - Chipset Fan Always Running on High RPM

Ladies, gents, I recently got a refurbished Z600 workstation and immediately noticed that the chipset fan is always running at approx. 2,500 rpm, even right after a cold boot and when idling. I can't image that this is normal - all the temperatures are fine, so I see no reason for the fan to spin this high. I know that it is a small fan which needs the high rpm to create sufficient air flow, but 2,500 rpm seems excessive. Has anybody experienced this before? Is this in fact the normal idle speed for the chipset fan (as the seller's customer service wants to make me believe)?

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

Having a slight issue with system temps hopefully didn t fry anything I was playing a game and the video cut out but I could still hear the sound going The hard drive was being accessed every now and then too so the system didn t really quot crash quot I did not 45+ 750i MB Temps Chipset Running Hot, get any blue screens but I had to manually restart the computer I opened up the case and started feeling around for temps I touched the video card which was hot but it s an HD so I figured that to be normal I touched the CPU cooler which was only warm but then I put my finger on the NB cooler The cooler was hot enough for me to pull my finger back 750i Chipset Running Hot, MB Temps 45+ so I installed the cooler that came with my mobo This cooler is only supposed to be installed with a passive or water cooler because of said internal CPU airflow but I can t really see a problem with having it installed anyways My problem seems to be motherboard ambient temperature rising to c and producing a red indicator with PC Probe II which reads temps directly from BIOS The CPU temp is actually staying lower than the ambient which leads me to believe that something is wrong I have some Tuniq TX- that I could try applying to the i but I m looking for other suggestions on what I should try first before I pull my mobo out and rip off the NB cooler So if anyone has any input I d appreciate the help Thanks in advance nbsp

I have a Toshiba Satellite  running windows 7. I got the computer from my father and had to remove a lot of malware and games. I wish i could do a factory reset but i do not have any of the factory disks. It seems like there are a lot of processes running and the physical memory is almost always at 100%. Any help would greatly be appreciated . Thanks in advance.

You can first try this:
http://www.howtogeek.com/74523/how-to-disable-startup-programs-in-windows/

Then you can try removing all the junk files on it using CCleaner or BleachBit or something similar. If that doesn't help, I would recommend dual booting this PC with Ubuntu 14.04. I actually published a tutorial on doing that here:
http://69.107.93.24/Blog/52015/

You could then use that as your primary OS.

Hello everyone I've been having a very weird problem recently in which I BELIEVE is involving high physical memory usage Sometimes I will be doing things such as playing a game or watching a stream and my computer will run fine for a little while But at random times my computer will majorly slow down and sometimes even crash If it doesn't crash sometimes it will get so slow to the point where I have to hold down the power button and manually shut it down Every time my computer slows down I notice it is using a TON of physical memory It's actually happening right now My computer is going very slow and it's using GB memory out of physical Very high memory running usage, no programs usage high There are no big programs running right Very high physical memory usage, no high usage programs running now so I don't understand why it's being slow I hope someone is able to help Thank you for taking the time to read this Update I just tried to open chrome and the computer froze completely It would not unfreeze After leaving it frozen for a minute or two the screen went black This is becoming very frustrating

Hey how's it going? My name is Mike, and my problem is with Video. I just downloaded and installed an updated driver for the SiS630/730 chipset and unfortunately it doesn't support 256 colors. The only color Depths it supports are 16 colors, 16 bit and 32 bit, with resolutions ranging from 640x480 to 1024x768. i'm running Windows XP Professional and some old games wont run without the 256 colors depth. Is there any way to override that color depth check, or install the 256 color depth manually?

A:Video Issues - Chipset Doesn't Support 256 colors - Error Running Games

You may wish to try this:
On your desktop or on the Start menu, right-click the game or other program that you want to run in 256 colors, and then click Properties.
Click the Compatibility tab.
Select the Run in 256 colors check box.

The screen will revert to your default color quality when you close the program.

This info was in the XP help & support facility.

i've got a new to me z600 workstation. Looking to upgrade it for video editing. Currently it's running windows XP pro, looking to upgrade that. Currently it has a X5550 chipset( single) 3gb ramCurrently it's running dual 160gb hd's Looking to upgrade the CPU's dual processors, largest possible. and max out ram (24gb)   What should I use?Hard drive, looking to install a SSD Any help is appreciated

I am working on a Z600 project right now, so this is timely.  You will need to use the search box on this page upper left area, which searches this forum only. 1.  First step is to see if you have an original motherboard or the later "revision 1" motherboard.  Best way to tell is if you look up the boot block date in BIOS, under the first tab.  The boot block date tells you if you have original or revision 1 most easily. 2.  Assuming it is the better later motherboard, then you need to find the latest Z600 QuickSpecs.... its in the 50s, maybe 51 or 58.  From that you can look at the HP supported processors.  Your memory should be the faster 1333 type but most of those processors listed there run slower than that.  3 run at the faster speed which will let your memory run faster too.  You can choose from those 3 for the best heavy lifting.  Note that the fastest quad core is faster than the fastest hexacore.  So, if you want raw speed I'd bet the quad core would serve you well.  If you want 12 rather than 8 total cores then go with the fastest hexacore.  I use the Noctua thermal paste.  We have had good success with used processors off eBay for these types of workstation upgrades. 3.  You'll want 2 processors, and you'll want to match to the heatsink/fan you already have. 4.  I believe you don't need a "performance" heatsink for 95 watt processor.... the motherboard wants one for processors that are over 95 watts, from my reading.  There is a way to spoof a motherboard into thinking it has a performance heatsink attached when it only is a mainstream, by the way. 5.  SSDs.... I have been very pleased with the Intel 320 series 300GB SSD that you can get off eBay.  We use a lot of those.... rock solid, and the Intel Toolbox is great for tuning it.  That workstation is a SATA Gen II one, and HP warns against using SATA Gen III HDDs in those unless they are sourced from HP (assume special HP firmware applied).  We have not seen a comment from HP on whether this rule holds also for SSDs, but I am assuming so.  Hence, I choose to use that particular SSD, and also have used HP-sourced Gen III SSDs in our SATA Gen II workstations with zero problems. The Intel 320 series SSD is a SATA Gen II drive with enterprise features, and has served us very well.  Even used off eBay they almost always have had 100% life left in them.  I update their firmware as needed via the Intel Toolbox. 6.  We use W7Pro64 mostly, but I have been pleased with the W10Pro64 OS.  You can upgrade to W10Pro64 for free at this time, so I have been "W10 activating" all my xw and Z workstations and having that ready for the future, but still mainly running them with W7Pro64.  Once your box is W10 activated you can install W10 anytime later.  You certainly want a 64 bit OS. 7.  You need a second processor to take advantage of the second set of 3 memory slots..... ideally you'll run with 6 x 1GB, 6 x 2GB, or 6 x 4GB.  The sweet spot for $/GB is with the 2GB sticks. Having them all the same size gets you a speed benefit too.... Look at official HP sticks for that on eBay and you also can find the same codes from other vendors such as Dell. I consider the HP sticks the best because they have been "binned" for quality. 8. HP just came out with a new BIOS for the Z600. It is best to update BIOS from within BIOS. I have gathered best HP driver sets for W7Pro64 from later HP workstation sources and they load fine on the Z600, but for W10 I've been using what comes from the autoload from MS. 9. I like to add in a quality eSATA backplane adapter to the bottom opening for fast backup and Acronis image captures. I also like to add one of the TI-based HP USB3 cards into the top PCIe slot, and am working on a nice use of that ...

The letters also refer to the power consumption figures of the CPUs in question. Note that the numbers associated with the letters are for the "Nehalem"-based Xeon family and older Xeons that use the letter designations have different TDP values associated with the letters. L = Thermal design power (expected power draw with a 100% CPU load running normal software) of 60 watts or less. These are the "low voltage" chips. E = TDP of 80 watts. Intel refers to the Xeon 5500/5600s with this letter prefix as the "basic" line and as a result, the idle power draw on these chips is frequently worse than any of the other series of chips, despite the other chips possibly having a higher full-load power draw. X = TDP of 95 watts. These are the "premium" mainstream chips as their TDP is not so excessive that they are difficult to cool in a rack server, yet their idle power consumption is far lower than the E-series chips. W = TDP of 130 watts and higher. These are the fastest, hottest Xeons made and they are designed to be used in workstations and pedestal servers with better cooling than an average 1U or 2U rack server. ========================================================Although I am an HP employee, I am speaking for myself and not for HP.========================================================**Click the KUDOS star on the left to say 'Thanks'** http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Business-PCs-Workstations-and-Point-of-Sale-Systems/Z600-CPU-upgrade/td-p/5053635 Relevancy 46.44% Hi everyone nbsp I've got a couple questions im not a very tech savy person so I tried to research as C2 for Z600 Upgrade much as I could nbsp st Question nbsp I would like to upgrade my z ram to gb which I read is the max amount of ram I can have also read that needs to be ECC Registered memory so I found this and I would like to know if it's the right option nbsp http www ebay com itm Server-RAM- GB- x- GB-PC - R-ECC-Registered- MHz- - v- Upgrade for Z600 C2 pin-Memory- nbsp nd Question nbsp Im interested in getting an USB pcie card but since this computer has been out for quite a long time im not sure if the card is compatible as I read thunderbolt cards are not compatible so this is the next best thing I found nbsp http www ebay com itm nbsp I would really appreciate any help I can get nbsp Thanks in advance and excuse my english not a native speaker A:Upgrade for Z600 C2 Heya there, this link might answer your 2nd question http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Business-PCs-Workstations-and-Point-of-Sale-Systems/PCIe-SSD/td-p/55733... http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Desktop-Hardware-and-Upgrade-Questions/Upgrade-for-Z600-C2/td-p/5484111 Relevancy 46.44% Hello nbsp nbsp nbsp nbsp I have a HP Z and love the machine nbsp It currently has nbsp nbsp Dual Xeon E Ghz nbsp Processors can HP V1.0 I Z600 Mobo do? with What - GB Ram nbsp Evga Geforce SC nbsp Lately I have been gaming a little on the machine because of the HP Z600 - with V1.0 Mobo What can I do? card I have installed nbsp However I am noticing slight performance issues with the machine nbsp I am assuming the processors at this point nbsp DUe HP Z600 - with V1.0 Mobo What can I do? to the fact all spec testing coming back and saying the processors are the minimum requirement's nbsp for allot nbsp of the games nbsp BF GTA Doom nbsp Don't get me wrong nbsp Doom plays amazing on this machine on nightmare ultra settings on a screen nbsp However there is some slight shuttering and hiccups here and there nbsp I have read so many different answers to this question and hope I can get a more direct answer nbsp With a Z V HP Z600 - with V1.0 Mobo What can I do? motherboard what are my faster Xeon processor options nbsp nbsp I would like an X however my understanding is that may not be a possibility nbsp with my older MB I have something like V bios software installed nbsp Or am I looking at a processor like the X nbsp nbsp Thank you for the input nbsp nbsp nbsp http://h30434.www3.hp.com/t5/Desktop-Hardware-and-Upgrade-Questions/HP-Z600-with-V1-0-Mobo-What-can-I-do/td-p/5769174 Relevancy 46.44% Relevancy 46.44% Are there any known compatibility issues between the Intel 865 chipset and nVidia-based video cards? The reason I ask is that after a year or more of running this system, suddenly no AGP video card I put into this system will work unless it's in plain VGA mode (no drivers). As soon as I load its proper driver, the system won't go back into Windows 98 or Windows 2000 (dual-boot system). It just hangs with a lot of gobbeldegook on the screen. All the AGP cards I have here are nVidia-based cards so I have no other type card to test with. At present, I'm using an old S3 PCI video card and at least it gets into Windows; but, I'm stumped.

Alex, I built quite a few systems with Intel D865PERL boards (865PE chipset) and nVidia video cards and never had a problem. My workbench machine right now is running a D865PERL board with a nVidia card with no problems. Intel released a new chipset driver on 6/04/2007, version 8.3.0.1013 which covered the 865 family, eg. 865G, 865GV, 865P and 865PE. http://www.intel.com/support/chipsets/sb/CS-009241.htm http://downloadcenter.intel.com/fil...rating+Systems&lang=eng&strOSs=All&submit=Go! In the release notes under Issues Resolved, item #4 stated; "Some devices were not updating correctly or at all. Fixed in installer." http://downloadmirror.intel.com/13499/ENG/relnotes.htm You may want to try that update. The only problem I see with the update is since you are dual booting, the latest update is OK with Win2K, however Win98 is not mentioned in All Operating Systems. To get back to an 865 chipset driver that covered both Win2K and Win98SE you had to go back to the release of 12/16/2004, version 6.3.0.1007 that covered both Win2K and Win98SE.

I suggested that this would need a fresh re-install as its a different chipset but the question I want to ask is that is he allowed to do this with the computer being a prebuild? If my friend installed a new B75 chipset motherboard then it would be seen as a direct replacement but if he upgraded to a Z77 chipset then this would be seen as an upgrade and thus the recovery discs supplied by advent would not be valid. am I correct in saying this? many thanks in advance for all comments.

Is this normal?? can somebody please give me some advice, many thanks in advance... Relevancy 46.01% Hey there! I got a later spec Z600 WS here that came with dual X5650 (TDP 95W).I made a good deal and got two X5680 (TDP 130W), and tryed to install those to the WS.System tells me, that the CPU installed needs too much power, and the System got halted. Is it a Problem with the Heatsink, because of the fact, it is to small (for TDP <95W), or is itrealy the mainboard, that just can't take the X5680 Xeons?I googled a lot and found some Z600 running on those CPUs, so what's the deal? I already tryed to bridge Pin 1 and 5 of the Heatsink-Fan Connector to simulate a Performance Heatsink,just to test if it would boot, but that did'nt work. A:Z600 with dual X5680 CPU First, I don't see your new processor type listed in the latest QuickSpec for the Z600 I looked up this morning..... version 51, which lists your current X5650 but not the X5680. There is a hot X5647 listed (at 130W max TDP) but the other higher performance processors are all 95W. So, there must have been a 130W cooling option for the Z600, and I'd presume it is the same as used for the Z800 (see below). Also, the Z600 must be able to provide 130W to each of its two processor sockets. I checked with the Z800 QuickSpecs (v56) and don't see the X5680 listed there either. The latest QuickSpecs, however, often do not list all processors that were listed previously. The now-unlisted ones will still work, and you can go back through the HP QuickSpec archives for your Z600 to see if the X5680 was ever officially listed. If it was then it surely should work. A HP engineer I trust fully has let me know that there are some cases in which a processor that was never officially listed will work. Let's just say that will be a rare exception. Maybe you have found one of those processors? The X5680 processor has only one sSpec code, SLBV5, and can be bought new now from Intel for$1663.00 each.  On eBay you can buy that processor today for about $200.00 each, USD, used. It is encouraging that you can get to the point of boot that the motherboard rejects your heatsink/fan combination, because my experience with truly non-listed processors is that they won't even get to that level. Flat zero progression into boot. So, I'd buy one of the "Performance" heatsink/fans from eBay, and the Alan guys there have almost 450 in stock at a fair price, new. That is a US source, and I have bought from them in the past many times, with never a problem. Buy one for about$50 and test with that and a single X5680 in place.  The wiring trick..... that jumper wire should work if HP is using the same motherboard sensing method for detecting presence of a performance heatsink/fan as was used in the xw8600, but who knows?  This performance boost is worth spending \$50.00 more on at this stage of the game to get an official Performance heatsink/fan to experiment with.  For example, perhaps HP added to the motherboard the ability to detect the larger 92x92x15mm heatsink fan rather than the regular heatsink's 80x80x15mm fan. Take a look at this link, for more details on the Performance heatsink/fan that I believe you need.  Those have been available on eBay for a fair price, new and you can find that via searching for part numbers 463991-001 and 535588-001: Z800 Performance heatsink larger fan  Here's a picture of the performance heatsink/larger fan for the Z800, and likely exactly what you need for your Z600 project.  All my references indicate these are identical, but the Z400 performance fan is different.  Note how this heatsink/fan is shifted leftward on its mounting plate, when viewed from front (the fan side).  The Z400 performance heatsink/fan is not shifted leftwards because it is a single socket motherboard and has a fair amount of room around it on both right and left sides.  Thus, the performance Z400 heatsink/fan will not fit on the primary socket of a Z600 but this one below will.  The performance Z400 heatsink/fan will however fit on the secondary socket of a Z600 with a little bending down of its rear air deflector plate at its bottom.  You can see pictures of that Z400 performance heatsink/fan elsewhere in the forum.   I'd make sure you have the latest BIOS installed, and also confirm in BIOS that you have the latest revision of the motherboard by checking the boot block date.  It sounds like you'll have already done all that.  If one of those X5680 processors works then the other will ...

Hi, Description explains it all, I've been thinking of replacing my current HDD for a SSD. I haven't done much researching on this myself but thought I would check here just encase there's any known issues/pit falls with installing a ssd into z600 workstation, I will be looking at adding a 1TB ssd. 1. Installing hardware? the z600 3.5 inch caddy wouldn't house an SSD, do HP sell brackets which will fit the z600 ? 2. Compatibility with the workstation? are there types of SSD which are best suited for z600 workstations? 3. Installing and set up? is it as straight forward as plugging in the SSD via SATA cable and installing the OS? Any Bios tweaks? Any info would be appreciated, Griff

I gave up trying with my X74 All-in-one in the end.

Lexmark website was very definite XP was last driver release.

Bought Canon MP 250 All-in-One then from Argos at £34.99 which I am very happy with. Although I dont do an awful lot of printing.
And mostly convert colour web pages to print in Grayscale.
(to save on colour cartridges)

The printer is quite noisy at start of printing as it resets heads and loads a page of paper, but quiet enough during printing.

Solved!

A:Usb 3.1 adapter in a Z600 workstation

Agree.... that card should work in a Z600, but will it work to the USB 3.1 10Gbps speed standard?     No. The HP Z600 workstation has no PCIe generation 3 slots.  It has 3 PCIe Gen2 slots, 1 PCIe Gen1 slot, and 2 PCI slots.  Below is a link to the HP page describing the Z600's slots: http://h20564.www2.hp.com/hpsc/doc/public/display?docId=emr_na-c01719695 Here is a note from StarTech regarding their card's speeds, emphasis added:  "The maximum throughput of this card is limited by the bus interface.  PCI Express Gen 1.0 max throughput is 2.5Gbps.  PCI Express Gen 2.0 max throughput is 5Gbps.  PCI Express Gen 3.0 max throughput is 10Gbps.  The available bandwidth (10Gbps) is shared equally between the two ports." These USB 3.0/USB 3.1 PCIe cards generally need power supplementation.... the +5VDC they need does not come up from the slot, but it is easy to find a 4-wire "molex" peripheral-to-SATA power adapter which can provide you the higher wattage 5VDC they need to meet potential power draws (versus what USB 2.0 needs).  All this info came from research figuring out how to add the Texas Instruments based HP USB 3.0 card to our xw6600 workstations, which have 2 PCIe Gen2 slots (the rest are Gen1).  Z620 gives you some PCIe Gen3 slots.... slots 2,4 and 5. Here's the Z600 slots diagram:

I'd take a look at your current cooler and see if it may have busted. You may have a cracked heat pipe or something.

If thermal paste is applied incorrectly, air bubbles can form between the heat sink and CPU and over time can push the paste from out between those two devices.

yes it cant go past 32gb read on intel's website for the cpu.
also, you'll want to disable the internal graphics card unless you really need it for some reason, it eats up system memory (RAM) and you paid for a graphics card so use that one.

Something in Windows is causing my poor laptop CPU (Intel i7-2720qm) to run at around 110% - 130% frequency all the time. This is, of course, causing it to run hot. I thought maybe HyperV was installed, so I checked services, but couldn't find it. Any idea what the culprit may be? Win7 Pro x64.

--

It seems to have calmed down now. I don't know what could have been causing it. I even have Windows Update set to not automatically download updates. Taskmanager had showed svchost (net services) as being the most CPU taxing for a while, but I don't know what or why. But it does this on a fairly regular basis.

Recently, I noticed that my RAM usage is high. It jumps up to 35 & 40, while it used to be 15% or less. This affects my gameplay and I can't play any game smoothly. CS:GO for example was perfect, now I have a lot of FPS drops and FPS spikes.

My CPU usage is running above 50% constantly. A program named sugif.exe is only taking up 4k memory, but running at 40-50 CPU usage constantly. I don't have any idea what sugif.exe is either. I have gone to msconfig and unchecked the 2 sugif.exe boxes for startup, yet it still runs. I ran a search for sugif.exe on my computer and it only appeared in the prefetch, I then deleted it. It's still running and search results return nothing. I've googled sugif.exe and get 0 results. I go to processes and click end process, and i'll end it but it won't go away.My computer just recently had to get cleared and everything was wiped out, so I have very little on this computer as it is.Any ideas on how to get rid of this sugif.exe??????

I have a DV7T-1000 hp
version 6.6.6002 service pack 2 build 6002
x86-based pc
bios hp f.12 8/28/2008
smbios version 2.4

My fan has recently started running almost constantly and loud. I have gone into msconfig and gotten rid of everything that doesn't need to run. The computer will do this when stationary with fan area hanging off of table exposed. When I sleep it or shut it, the light on the exterior of the computer (that says hp) stays on and the fan runs on high. I don't believe there is dirt in there. Around the same time, I noticed number lock and the keypad on the side stopped working.

could part of this be that I have never replaced the battery?

What else could it be?

Hi! I booted my laptop tonight and I notice that it is really slow. Start up is good (I only had 4 start up entries). But when I try to refresh the desktop, it will take a long time before the menu will pop up.Whenever I click refresh, it will almost take 10 seconds before it will refresh. I checked the task manager and I had a very high CPU usage (It almost doesn't fluctuate. CPU usage is stuck at 100%). It shows 100% CPU usage without running anything else. Also, I have a high memory usage (2.22 GB). What should I do? Thanks in advance!

A:Problem with Cooler Master chipset cooler RUNNING HOT!

chipsets have a higher heat tolerence than CPUs, 40c is a safe operating temp. also, temp sensors are not accurate, so you can't really go by the reading from it anyways. it's not unusual for software based sensor to be as much as 10c off the actual temp.

the cooler you bought should work fine. did you thoroughly clean the chipset and heatsink with isopropyl alcohol and then apply new thermal compound before mounting the cooler?

Hope this is correct place for this...may not be specific Win 7 issue...but it's come up on a new Win 7 installation/setup. Ran a program call Speccy recommended somewhere in Seven forums and noticed what appears to me to be very warm/hot temperatures in my PC box.

While Speccy mainly reports on what specific hardware is in the PC..it also is getting temperature info from the system. The following are what concerns me:

1) cpu is running at 84 degrees Fahrenheit ( AMD Athlon II X4 620 )
2) Graphics card is running at 140 degrees Fahrenheit ( Nvidia GeForce 7600 CT w 256mb )
3) hard drives are running at about 94 degrees Fahrenheit ( Maxtor Sata drives )

Two questions...are these in the normal temp range or are they as they seem to me high ...?...and also is there another way to confirm these are being accurately reported ?

A:Fans running high and low causes pc to pause?

Your fan runs high/low depending on the stress you're putting on your processor. It goes high to cool down the system to maintain the average temperature.
For example, My custom built computer has its temps around 50degrees and if it rises above it, the fan will go up lot to keep the temps between the margin.

However if your PC is around 55-59 temps then it should be fine unless they are idle..

The computer is a Dell Vostro 220s, Windows XP Pro SP3, 3 GM mem. I've had it for about a year and a half now. Here lately it doesn't seem to be running as well as it has been. When task manager is opened, it seems like it doesn't take much to run up the "CPU Usage" and cause the system to slow down significantly. For example, just opening and running firefox can shoot it up as high as 40-50% and running disk cleanup (which I'm doing right now) has it hovering in the 70s.

Matt

Could you clarify the situation? "Task Manager running high" doesn't mean anything. You must be specific.

I believe XP will have a minimum of 6 instances of svchost.exe running and possible more.

Posting a screenshot of Task Manager - performance tab would be helpful. When you have performance problems this is where you start. Looking at the Processes tab is premature.
