AMD FX-8350 fan is too noisy! Need advice!

I have recently built a unit with AMD FX-8350 processor. It's built in fan is noisy and annoying! Sometimes it sounds like a throttling motorcycle. Is there a way make it silent without killing it? lol
If not can you recommend a good cooling system for this CPU?

Thanks a lot!

  5. I have exactly the same problem (I live in the UK). Is there a quiet fan that can be used as a drop in replacement?

  6. One solution that I found besides buying a new cooler is to change the power plan settings in control panel to "Power Saver". This reduces the fan noise at the cost of CPU power. When I play games I switch to "High Performance" plan which increases the speed of the fan/CPU.

  9. Yea me too!!!
    Just built new today with the 8350 on a UD5 mobo, stock fan/cooler.. WTF? sounds like a motorcycle alright, and it revs up to about 4000 RPM and 40C and back down, and back up, every few seconds just with simple web browsing..
    Is this normal/common for the 8350?
    While researching the 8350 most people said the stock fan and cooler were good once you don't overclock..

  11. Hey dude.

    Get the Noctua D14 for Php 3,300 (around US $78). Try PC Hub or DynaQuest (Manila shops).

    The solution was simply to find the right BIOS setting. By default it was set to always be on max speed.

  13. Hey all,

    I had the same problem. My motherboard is an ASUS M5A97. Turns out, the default BIOS setting wasn't really compatible with the AMD FX-8350.

    I simply downloaded the latest BIOS file for my motherboard from the ASUS website and ran the Asus Update utility and updated my BIOS from file. After that my CPU is now running cooler and the stock fan is quiet as can be.

    Hope this helps!

    i agree... if i were to supposedly do an 8350... i would no doubt do a noctua nh-d14(the all around best air cooler) and see how far past 5.0ghz i could get out of the chip. those 8 core fx's get hot. at 4.8ghz+ they are beasts and easily trade blows with the 4core8thread intel options... overclock vs overclock.

    The stock heat sink / fan are not good , fan is noisy and it will not keep that cpu cool (at stock clocks ) if you are stressing it , mine was going over 62c gaming , and over 65 running WCG B O I N C overnight . If you plan on overclocking the stock HSF has to go . I use an inexpensive deepcool 300 gammax on my 3 fx 8530 rigs and it is kept under 44c running all cores 100% @ 4.3 , 52c @ 4.5 , and dead silent even with the cooler fan spinning at 100% . So far been over 2 years and no problems , all 3 computers run 24/7 looking for cures for cancer when not being used for work of gaming .

    If you want to keep the stock heat sink try and find a fan from an old dual core opteron , the one with the 9 curved blades like the one on the right in this photo , one on the left is the new straight 7 blade noisy fan

  17. Try a refurbished Corsair liquid cooler. The go through more tests than the new ones. I use a old used H50 with an extra fan and never go over 59c at 4.5Ghz.

  18. solution to this problem:

    Get rid of the stock cooler.

    Cheap cooler options I can recommend: Cooler Master TX3 £15 or $20

    OR

    Cooler Master CM 212 £25 or $30

    The stock AMD coolers are generally quite poor on the FX series, I say this having owned an FX-4100 and FX-8320.

    I recently bought the same processor as you for one of my gaming builds, and was also having the same problem. I contacted AMD and they told me the fan on the heat sink was blowing air towards the processor, (causing the CPU to heat up, and in turn, causing the fans to blow faster to "dissipate" the heat. ) when it should be blowing air away from the processor.

    If I were you, I would check the flow of the fan, and if the fan is blowing toward the processor, contact AMD to have the processor and fan replaced.
