Just like the title says, I believe it is a Asus Q550LF-BBI7T07. I replaced the ram (now 16gb) and the hdd to a ssd (500gb). Even before the hardware upgrade it would have the fans at max speed. Also i can't find anywhere in the bios where i could change the fan speed, and putting it on power saver mode did nothing as well. Here are some pictures of the bios menus incase you were wondering : http://imgur.com/a/huOSQ

edit: oh and speedfan crashes everytime

Odd. There should be some way to access the fan speed in the BIOS yet I don't see anything there (in your images) that would lead to it. Very strange. Although it is possible that your motherboard doesn't support fan speed controlling.

There are a few other speed testing/changing programs out there, although Speedfan is the one I personally like, you said it doesn't work for you. Others you can try are HWiNFO, Argus Monitor, Open Hardware Monitor, AIDA64, GSmartControl, AIDA64 Extreme Edition, Real Temp, Im-Sensors and 3C Toolbox.

Once you have checked the actual temps, you can get a better picture of what is going on. In the end, however, you may need to check the thermal paste and/or even replace the fan.
