After flashing a 78FK Hitachi drive, the fans will speed up over the space of about one minute until they reach full speed. The heatsink compound has also been changed to arctic silver, any ideas why these fans are doing this?

Make sure you have the 8 tiny Black screws on the bottom tight, they help hold the heatsinks down. It's possible you used to much or too little AS5 as well or didn't clean the old paste off before upgrading?

It actually took almost 10 minutes to clean the old thermal paste off as the bottom layer was pretty much baked, I'll double check the screws soon, TY for the reply.
