Sorry if this is the wrong place... Best place I could think of.
So, I have a self-built rig running Ubuntu, and now Windows XP dual boot. Yay.
However, I have noticed. While in Ubuntu my fans run significantly quieter then when in Windows. While in Ubuntu I can barely hear my computers fans, even while running things like ETQW or rendering applications.
Meanwhile in Windows XP as soon as it passes the "Windows XP" screen with the 4 window panes and loading bar, one of my fans immediately shoots to 100%, is this normal?
Anyone know a fix? I've tried playing with my Mobo settings and Speedfan, with no luck. It's getting quite annoying that while my computers sitting here at 30 degrees across the board with a fan on full power, it's very noisy.
