Are you referring to the power supply fan?Hi i just upgraded the processor from 2.8Ghz to a 3.80ghz processor everything is awesome but now my fan is so loud but the pc case is not even hot and my pc has no dust how can i fix this
I'm not an expert in processor(CPU) upgrades, but it's my guess the 3.8 GHz is putting out more heat than the 2.8 GHz was putting out and is causing the heatsink fan to run faster.It's the CPU fan running loud it's using the stock heat sink for the 2.8GHz
I did the same thing ,upgraded from a 2.8 to a 3.8 and my cpu fan (the exhaust fan i call it) speeds up when i play a on line army game and when i get done and close out the game ,..the fan will slow down..a lot...so i figured the fan is having to cool the processor ,of course its going to be a lot hotter than the 2.8. I took a 12 VDC fan and mounted it over the cooling shroud ...it is quieter and hooked to a CD rom power source but dont do this if you haven't before.Yes that processor will get hotter ...it is a whole ghz higher than the original
