Re: Fan noise

Make sure the computer is sitting perfectly level. Wife's Dell computer was a bit noisy. I noticed it was on a shelf that was leaning a bit sideways. So I moved it and checked it with a small spirit level. Now it is running very quietly.

Re: Fan noise

Generally fans on lower end cases are fairly cheap. I've had several new ones that make lots of noise new. You can call the manufacturers tech support and mess around tryig to get a replacemet or you can just order an inexpensive replacement fan. Cyberguys is where I typically buy my replacements.

Note that the stock "ADDA" fans are mounted with Lian Li plastic mounting hardware. (4 Clips.) If you remove them gently by pressing from the pins out and then pulling the pins out completely the mounts can be re-used for your new fans.

Need schematics for hp pavillion dv7-1130us. Need to take back off because the exhaust fan's fin is rubbing against case.

It would be much easier to remove the SIDE cover than the BACK cover.

Turn the computer off, and disconnect the AC power.

Once you do, you can see the 4 screws connecting the case-fan to the back of the case, and the wires running from the fan to a power-connector on the motherboard.

Carefully note the "orientation" of the plug that connects the wires to the motherboard. Then, gently pull on the plug, to disconnect it.

Take a screwdriver, and undo the 4 screws.

Buy a new fan, and reverse the process to install the new fan.

Whining sound with xion 800 watt power supply.

There is a fan insine the power supply, and also a fan on the CPU. Occasionally there is also a fan on the chassis of the computer itself.

Turn on the computer, take the case off, and listen to identify the source of the noise. If it's inside the PSU, return it and get a new one.

Raidmax Sirius mid-tower case fan alarm

Here are some solutions:
1. Try to use some silicon oil in fan apertures to decrease rub
2. Try to manually (look for a mainboard's service software settings) decrease rotation speed if available
3. Less recomended: disconnect fan cable from mainboard and don't stress your computer (try not to overheat, - work with software that uses less resources) and buy a new one when available

1000 watt power supply

I wouldn't recommend it as PSUs require a particular airflow. That airflow might be blocked by placing it next to the Hard Drive(s) and might heat up your system even more.

If the cables are long enough, you could just find a way to mount the PSU outside of your system. That way it stays cool, doesn't hamper airflow within your system, and doesn't generate excess heat inside your system.

Your fan should be positioned so that it PULLS the hot air AWAY from your CPU and heat sink.
And anyother case fans you may have should be facing out so they pull the hot air out of your case, as well as any dust, pet hair, etc.

Fan controller does not work! Power Up (TC3J-4048)

It is bad out of the box. either take it back or email whoever sold it to you and get a new fan. You should not have to pay for a new one.
