    Intel XTU causing CPU fan to run at 100%


      So , I installed the Intel Xtreme Tuning Utility , didnt want to mess with any settings but wanted it installed just in case.

      Restarted PC, my CPU fan spins up to 100% and stays there until shutdown.

      Most of the time its running at 12% load , the CPU never spun up to 100% before installing this software, yet after uninstalling with Revo , the fan still spins up to 100%.

      It does not spin up to 100% while in the BIOS or Safe mode , so a program or service is causing this.

      Any advice ? The Fan is so loud and simply dosent need to be at this load.

      I tried to install the Gigabyte fan utility via its lovely driver-error-filled appcenter with no joy , this and Speedfan cannot control the CPU fan.

      Speed fan says its running at 872RPM but the CPU is 20 Deg.
