viggo_wam Posted October 25, 2010 Share Posted October 25, 2010 its become very noise lately, it wasnt like that until about a week ago, this happens when the computer is idle as well as under load ive stopped all the other fans in the computer, its def the HX620 fan, ive even taken out the psu and cleaned it with compressed air to get all the dust out. there are no heating problems with hte psu, its just the fan and the noise is driving me a bit insane. ive had the same problem with other fans too over time so i know the sound. remember the psu has been running more or less constantly for 3 years or so, im pretty sure its just the fan thats getting worn. it sounds a bit like a cable might be touching the fan but i dont think thats the case(if it is id have to open up the psu anyway). until about a week ago its been dead silent no matter what i do. my question is really can i replace the fan (i dont care about the warranty)? and if so what fan is recommended? will one of my beloved Nexus 120mm Real Silent Case Fans do? edit: forgot to mention its the same both in ubuntu and in xp (which i booted for the first time in years just to check) Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
