Solved

Brand new computer's fan is too loud.

I recently bought a new computer from Newegg.com, but I didn't expect the fan to be so loud. The fan is constantly loud. Once I hit the power button, the fan starts roaring. When I do play games, such as WoW, LoL, Minecraft, or multitasking while playing other videos, the fan noise stays relevantly the same with no increase or anything. The fan is just loud at all times and I want to reduce it as much as possible.

If anyone can help me as to how I can reduce the noise, it'll be awesome! Some tips or fan controllers to buy, etc.? Thank you.

    Uhmm, I'm actually pretty new at this, so I am not sure what fan it is. How can I possibly check and locate it?
  3. well you can open the case sidepanel and listen. The cpu fan = the Fan thats sitting on top of your processor. The gpu fan = the one that sits on your fan and blows air into your graphic card and the system fans = the fans that can be attached in the front, bottom, back and top of the case and is wired to your motherboard.
  4. It's probably the stock AMD CPU fan which is best to replace anyway. Something like a CM Hyper 212 EVO should do the trick.

    Issues after looking at your pc

    1. the power supply is absolute rubbish 350w in a gaming rig is a joke im suprised its stable even though that card doesnt pull much as its low end ( cyberpower does this to all there gaming rigs using low end quality power supplys which tend to fail)

    things i would change at least so your pc doesnt kill itself later on

    cheap psu upgrade

    fans lower rpm less noise decent airflow

    better cooler then stock cooler

    apply 2 pea size dots in middle of cpu and spread evenly with a plastic card do not lift the card then attach your new cooler and lock in place use a cotton bud and go round the socket to pick up any excess queezed out plug in the fan and away you go

    I think it is the system fans. It's wired. I could be wrong though.

    The black fan right in the middle is the one causing the noise. Not sure if that'll help. Thank you. I can post another picture of it if it's unclear.

    also to be noted when you want better performance to play some higher games

    once psu is changed and you feel you need a decent better boost

    grab a 7790 which is a fairly big jump from your 7750
