Default phenom II 955 speedfan help

I just put together a new system, gigabyte ud5 board and a phenom II 955 be.
I installed speed fan and my idle temps are : temp1 45
temp2 27
temp3 35
core 27
the 45 seems high but I don't really know,
I have a corsair h70 installed as well, the fans rpm is around 1340 acording to speed fan.
Its very quiet and I wouldn't mind turning the speed up but I can't figure out how.
I tried with easytune6 as well but fan speed won't change.

So is this running too hot and how can I adjust the fan speed ?

I'm going to install bc2 to see if the rpm goes up.

what are the load temps? if you set it in bios you can,usually,adjust it in the os with easytune and sometimes speedfan.

prime95 it and see what load temps are. not very familiar with the stock h70 fan, but it should ram up to about 2k rpm i believe

Well for anyone with an h70, I re-tightened the screws of the heatsink after a few hours of gaming, that did wonders it seems. Now idling around 33-34,played 2 hours of bc2 and it never went higher than 46.
I will still mess with the fan speed later, even while gaming the fans are going pretty slow, can barely hear them and my case is still open.
