I just bought a brand-new AMD Athlon 3000+ (Socket 939). Now i'm quite happy with my new system but for one thing: the fan on the processor is far too loud.
Now i'm not sure if the "Cool & Quiet" technology has anything to do with it, but when i open the application thing the processor speed gauge and voltage meter remain static- Frequency is always at 1800 MHz and voltage at 1.3750. The meter remains the same whatever i do.
I'm not sure what to do- is there a problem with the "cool n quiet" thing or should i just get a new heatsink and fan?
I'm going to agree with hans. I have 3 a64s. I cant hear any of the fans over hdds, or in one case, the 9800p gfx card. Make sure the fan screws are snug (dont tighten too much though) and that the bracket is fully engaged.
