Need help..... my internal PC fan is extremely noisy Tags: Optiplex Fan Components Last response: April 24, 2010 5:02 AM in Components Share True Colors April 24, 2010 4:58:10 AM I have a Dell PC..... an Optiplex GX280. When i first turn it on the fan is audible, but not terrible. However, when I try to run anything the fan will kick into maximum overdrive. It sounds like a damn jet plane takeoff. It sounds like it is spinning extremely fast and it is also extremely loud. Is there something I can do about this? Can I change the settings so that it will not spin so fast? Also, can I do something to make it less noisy? Is there some way to lubricate these things?
