Hello,

I recently upgraded CPU and RAM on my optiplex 330 mt from Dual Core E2160 CPU to Core 2 Duo E8400 CPU. RAM ungraded from 1 GB to 3 GB. Now CPU fan is too noisy. I didn't upgraded my bios to newer version because current version A03 detected the new processor, is it the problem that cpu fan is too noisy ? Also sometimes pc is restarting. I checked the temps using Speedfan, it was

HD0: 48C \ Core 0 : 36C \ Core 1: 42C

I tried to reduce fan speed using speedfan but the software doing nothing! a person told me to replace the CPU fan and heatsink. So I brought CPU fan with heatsink that compatible with Core 2 duo processors. Tried to insert it but power plugs are different. fan power plug is bigger than the fan connecting port on motherboard, can't connect it.

Here is the fan connector on motherboard. http://goo.gl/szFh5l

Here is the new fan I tried to connect. http://goo.gl/WXbMsN

Can anyone help me to solve this issue ?

Thanks in advance.

I used cheap thermal paste. I will buy a better one. I'm using stock fan, I can't replace it with a better fan the fan I have not matched with motherboard fan connector port. How do I connect it ? Thanks for response.

You can by as5 thermal paste for 5 dollar whole kit on amazon. To change the fan/heatsink just open your case uninstall the current one and the new one will come with instructions on how to install. Make sure the heatsink you get is compatible with your motherboards socket. To connect the cpu fan to the cpu fan header on the motherboard just look for the 3 or 4 pin plug and it should say super small letters under it something like cpu fan or something that involves cpu.


Thanks. the cpu fan header in mother board is too thick than the new fan power plug. please see this pictures.
