Question about Dell (6F858) Cooling Fan

1 Answer

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.

How do I remove and replace a CPU cooling fan on my Dell Dimension 2400


Make sure u can open the casing well to expose the interior parts without causing any damage. Then by close look at the processor area , that is where the heat sink is located. Normally the dell dimension 2400 has a green channel shaped structure that acts as a passage for the air that enters in and out for cooling the heat sink. It has a locking parts that slides into the casing back by slight pressing to the back of the casing just behind the processor area, be so observant to notice the locking parts. then the fan is just fixed behind that green " channel like" and its fixed on the rear side of the casing, 25275582-o0cuhlgwrl13okm3u3q5444d-5-0.jpg

I changed the CPU fan on Dell dimension 3000 but it does not run.


Dell uses a proprietary fan on it's cpu's. This is more than likely your problem. The motherboard does not recognize the new fan and the motherboard is not powering it on. Without replacing the motherboard you are stuck using dell replacement parts for this model. The motherboard & psu are also proprietary in this model so it would take a whole lot of modification to use anything but Dell replacement parts. Your pc is shutting down due to overheating. Sorry. Hope this helps.

Loud motherboard fan on Dell Dimension 9100


depends on the noise. Rattling: Ensure that all cables are out of the way and not touching the blades. Loud screaching noise: replace the fan immediately. now when you say mother board fan is it inbuilt?

Dell 3000 PC is extremely loud like a vacumn cleaner right next to your ear... and gets louder and louder throughout the day. Have ran disk clean, Registry Mechanic, and Disk Defrag. Lots of room left on...


Check your cpu fan, chassis fan, and the fan on the power supply. If all the fans are working then the bearings in the hard drive is about to go out. That is if you are not using a cd or dvd rom.
