Is it dangerous iff..

My AMD fx 8320's stock cpu cooler is constantly running at like 6500+ rpms and really loud. But my temperatures on my cpu are fine.. Get to maybe 60c at 100% load.. So can it harm my pc? (I have a new cpu cooler coming in about a week)

  1. Did this just start happening? If you can tolerate the noise full speed can't harm anything, but its unnecessary, as it should modulate as needed against tempature.
  2. No, it isn't going to harm your computer. Just pay attention for if the noise suddenly stops. :P
  3. It's just the stock cpu cooler is loud, and I have one on the way.
  4. What is running the fan? ex. bios, speed fan, CCC ?
    Your aftermarket cooler will behave the same way, if you cannot control the fan now.
  5. Did you diddle with some settings?

    You are fine. And AMDs stock fan for their high end models is just noisy. Its a 60mm, or 70mm not sure fan so it will have higher RPMs to move the same air as say a 120mm fan at 3000RPM.

    Yes, my new fan is 120mm and the max rpms are like 2k or so, so it's much quieter with better airflow.
