I built a new computer, with a i7 950, Kingwin 850 WATT PSU, 8GB RAM, Gigabyte x58-USB3 Motherboard, and everything was working fine for the past 3 days, but then all of suddenly when I turn it on now, ALL the fans go FULL blast, but not when I turn it on, only once I log into windows, and my screen shows up, the fans go nuts! Could this be a PSU error? But why only when windows logs in? I waited 1 minute, but they didnt slow down..

This includes all fans, the PSU fan, the Case Fans, and the CPU cooler fans, so werid...

It might be a software issue, have you been messing around with a third party software that are fan controllers?

I found out its only the PSU FAN, not the other fans, its just so damn loud and noisy, any clues? Because software doesnt controll the PSU fan right? It controls itself right? Or am i wrong?

Thanks

The psu will be thermally controlled by itself.
Your other option would be to find the same powered fan but quieter and change the psu fan.

Depending on the PSU, I think most PSU's control their fans based on their own internal temperature. It might be heating up and blasting the fan to cool off.

but why only when the home page of windows opens? I was in bios for 10 minutes, and it was perfectly quiet and fine, then I log into windows and BAM, its a hurricane ...8(?

Is a program like Antivirus running a scan as soon as you log into windows, check your startup items.

If this is the case the components will be drawing power from the psu causing it to heat up and the fans speed up.

Start your computer up into safemode and see if the same thing happens, if it doesn't then you know its a program causing the issue. If safemode does however have the same thing, it could still be a software issue but on a much lower level then simply programs.

Upon starting your computer, for most it should be clicking F8 and then choosing safemode when the menu pops up.

just tap the f8 key (found at the top of the keyboard) while the pc starts up and if youre lucky itll show a little menu and you can use the arrow keys to select safe mode.

I will do this and get back to you guys, I have a feeling it might be the utility software from gigabyte that is doing it, Just thought of that, I will find out,

Thanks

Guess what, it worked!! I went to safe mode, No full blast fan speed, regular fan speed, and I went to MSCONFIG, disabled Start up services, and logged into normal windows, everything was fine! So it was a gigabyte software, either the "SMART 6" or the "Easy Tune 6" software.

I think we all learned something here....Weirdest issue Ive ever encountered.

great so im installing that VGA cooler and now....So I removed most of the big screws on the back plate of my Sapphire ATI 5870 card, but now do i remove these screws that are attached to the expansion slot bracket? --> http://img402.imageshack.us/img402/5958/rimg0060.jpg

Also, what about these ones that are on the middle X plate thing, what is that? Remove them? http://img233.imageshack.us/img233/5594/rimg0055.jpg

Don't think the expansion slot needs removing, can't you just get at it from the other side?

Remove all other visible screws and wiggle of heatsink.

Usually all the screws you can find need to be removed yes.
