Everything is great so far, though I had one thing give me pause. I got a bios warning about low cpu cooler fan speed. Going into bios I was getting a steady 32 degrees C, and the fans on the Noctua were running about 400 RPMs. I went into the bios and lowered the RPM threshold for the warning and things seem good.
Does this sound odd to anyone that may be an issue that needs immediate attention?
Is there a good application that I can use outside of bios to keep an eye on component temps outside of bios as I start to actually using the hardware?
Thanks in advance for humoring my ignorance on such things.
