Question about Dell (6F858) Cooling Fan

Cooling fan Dell Dimension 3000

The Dell Fan started to get loud and I replaced with a new one (Dell). The fan is attached to a plastic duct that comes down over the heat sink/CPU. It appears the fan does not draw in and blow down over the CPU but sucks air from around it and discharges it out the back. Is that the correct way to install that fan or did I install it backward?. I'm running a temperature of about 35C.

Thanks for your help.

That is the correct way. It is a newer design that keeps the hot air from the CPU heatsink out of the case. 35C is a good temp.

I have a Dell inspiron 1525...I have found that now, after a year and half the fan has become loud and noise. So noise, I wake up in the middle of the night, hearing my computer cooling b/c the fan is so...


you need to buy a new fan, your fan is about to give up the ghost. if you let the fan die while the pc is running, it might burn out the cpu.

fans are very cheap, like a few dollars, and do not always last forever.

Loud fan


A loud fan noise could be caused by a worn fan bearing. Try placing a drop of oil on the fan bearing, if this doesn't work then replace the fan.

Dell Inspiron Fan running constantly and very loud. Can I replace with Quieter Fan? If so, what fan model and Who would you suggest have replace it? Or are there other options? This is driving me...


Stock fans tend to be very loud. If this is a laptop your probably SOL on finding a compatible replacement. If this is a desktop then just buy the same dimensions or just by the fan/heat sink combo's of the same size.
From looking up the fan in question I'd say this is a laptop and there isn't much you can do about it

I have a dell dimension E510. When the computer boots up it runs fine for about 5 minutes, then the fan begins to speed up. It will speed up a little, then drop off a little surge more and then the end...


If the fan is clanking/clicking it needs to be replaced, a whine is an indication that the fan will be failing soon and will need to be replaced.
In general if the fans are spinning really fast it means that the system is getting hot and needs cooling. make sure to clean out your system regularly. http://www.pctechbytes.com/DIY/maintenance.htm
You may need to get another fan or two to install in the system to increase air flow, or move the system to a better ventilated area.

Fan Noise on Dell Dimension 8100


All computer fans have a general design.  The name in front of "fan" really refers to the designation.  You'll see case fan, processor fan, CPU fan, cooling fan, etc.  In the case of CPU/Processor fan, some are sold with heatsinks (the metal block sitting on top of your CPU).

The first thing you want to do is make sure the fan is clean.  Chances are dust buildup is causing the excess noise.

If that's not the case and you're looking to replace the fan, then you first need to find out the size of the fan. General sizes(diameter X width in mm) are listed on this page:

http://www.svc.com/case-fans.html

Generally, you're looking for something that will match the size of what you're replacing & push enough air at a reasonable noise level to cool the heatsink/CPU.  You want to stay in the area of 30dBA max for noise.  You also want to see if it has a 3-pin or 4-pin connection.

For example, if you have an 80mm fan, I would suggest something like this:

http://www.svc.com/saf-b82-19.html

It's pretty quiet with good airflow.  Also, it has a 3-pin connection, but includes an adapter for a 4-pin connection.
