cpu fan is noisy
Hi , my cpu fan is starting to become noisy and it's not as quiet as it used to be when i bought my computer 10 months ago..I have a cooler master and the average speed is 1660 rpm..I recently tried to install a intel cpu fan on there but it was hard because of those plastic caps around the pins..Im looking for a cpu fan that i can just screw it with a screwdriver but not those plastic pins cpu fan's ..Where can i get a quiet and good quality cpu fan that is not noisy ? What brand would be good ? Please help as it would be appreciated..
If you're looking for just a fan, one would need to know what heatsink you've got in order to answer.
But I'd suggest just getting a new complete cooler instead. Go buy this one (amd): http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16835185125 or this one (intel 478): http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16835185114
No idea what cpu socket you've got ... but neither of these will fit on intel's lga775
Hi guys , sorry i didnt give more information..I have a hp m7360n media center pc with an intel pentium d 920 3.2ghz processor and it goes on a socket 775 ..I need a cpu fan with the heatsink on it and im planning to waste no more than 50 dollars..what would you all recommend as a quiet cpu fan for this pc ?
How much room is there between the top of the cpu socket, and the side plate? if there's room get a scythe ninja, and if room isn't available the following one is popular (I've not tried it tho) http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16835186134
ps. why's your hp making noise anyway? I'm buying almost only hp computers at work, and altho various problems have surfaced, I've yet to come across a noise problem.
well they exist, but I don't know which are clipped and which not. Tried newegg? perhaps the attachment type is listed? (no idea)
Anyhow, I've got a spare thermaltake silent boost somewhere at home, and they came with backplates - thus not clips. Perhaps such a thing is an option - that fan in particular is not tho, cause it was far from silent with its 92mm fan ... but another of that kind might be.
