Cooling Antec Kühler + extra fans (Antec, Zalman, Coolermaster, Generic brand)
Memory 8Gb (2 x 4Gb)

Power Supply It's made in Denmark, never seen a PSU made there..

Ok, the title may sound a bit dumb, what I meant was, I want the fan to be "On" all the time, sometimes it stops rotating, and after a few seconds it goes up again.

This is what I have done so far:
Power settings:
Advanced power settings System cooling policy; Plugged in: Active.

But uh.. It doesn't stay "active" for long. Was searching for an updated BIOS.. Nada.

Anyone who got a solution or any third part program I can use?
Thing gets hot fast, so I want to keep it cool all the time.

System is using Windows 7 Ultimate x64.
