I just got a nice Antec 900 and spent HOURS setting it up, anyway everything is nice but my CPU FAN IS SUPER LOUD
it starts out ok and then VROOOOOOOMMMMMMM like a fkin motorbike
Now I know what you're thinking, but no, the cooling is perfect, in fact I have even turned off the CPU fan by pulling the connector out, so I'm just relying on the side intake/exhaust fans at the top to do the cooling, I'm at 30degrees average right now with NO cpu fan, I think that tells you it's not overheating...
But yes, if I plug it back in VROOOOOOOOOOOOOMMMM unbearable noise, the only thing I have changed is the case my computer is stored in since I last booted it, what the hell? PLEASE tell me how to turn the fan down
You should see the antec 900 XD, it's got a near-industrial level 200mm fan directly above the CPU and I've turned the 120mm next to the CPU into an intake, remember all my CPU fan does is blow air over the heatsink but in like an 80mm size and less power, but i would rather have it running just for security.
Is the cpu fan plugged into the m/b or a fan controller. If it's on the m/b, go in to your boss and ensure that the fan speed is set to auto, not 100%. Also, are you sure that 30 degrees doesn't relate to ambient temp rather than cpu temp?
Wouldn't recommend running pc without cpu fan running at all.
If all else fails, make sure that the cpu hs&f is still sat on the cpu properly, and that it hasn't come loose in the transfer go your new case. You may need to reseat it with some fresh thermal paste.
Yeah it had a pot thing on it to draw air from the top of my old Acer case, but obviously it would just be hitting the sidewindow and getting no air, but i res-set it perfectly, it's pushing air over the heatsink
And yes I'm using CPU-Z, I got about 20-30 degrees with the fan on in my old case, I trust it and also my 200MM exhaust is pulling cold air, so don't worry, all is k but tomorrow I'm gonna plug the fan back in and look in the bios.
This is an Acer E946GZ motherboard, it's an ancient mobo so I doubt it will have CPU fan speeds, I hope it does though
(I can't do it now cus it's almost 1am and I have other people to consider.)
