The ZALMAN CNPS9700 is the best air cooler on the market.It looks cool and is quite easy to install. I have one in my box and I have 34 degrees with an Intel Quad core running 1 Gigahertz over stock.

What kind of cpu cooling fan can I use in a Acer America ASE380-UD420A desktop computer?


Cooling fan to CPU are come along with the CPU. You can use any other fan, having speed regulator pin, ie, the connector wire to it will have three conductors. Keep a close look at the size and seating screws to its body to the heat-sink of the CPU.

Hi there is a toolbar coming up the whole time saying,,,,,WARNING a problem with the cooling system has been detected, please turn of the computer and return for service immediately


Try to fix the problem without taking the laptop apart first but I would recommend using a powerful air compressor instead of a vacuum cleaner.

Welcome to FixYa! Based on the error you have received, this means that the cooling fan of your laptop needs to be cleaned and checked at. This is a common problem with any toshiba laptop. I suggest checking the heatsink of your laptop. If the CPU heatsink is not clogged with dust and lint completely, you can use canned air and just blow it inside the laptop through the openings on the bottom and on the sides. It's nice as a precaution measure, but it might not work if your laptop already has a problem and the heatsink is completely clogged.

  1. Open the laptop case, so you can access the CPU fan and the heatsink. In some cases you can access the heatsink through the latch on the bottom of the laptop. Sometimes (for example Toshiba Satellite A70/A75) you have to open the laptop case all the way down.
  2. Carefully disconnect the fan cables on the system board and remove the fan. If the fan makes unusual sound when it spins (grinding sound), I would recommend to replace the fan.
  3. Clean the fan and the heatsink with compressed air.
  4. I would also recommend removing old thermal grease from the CPU and applying new grease for better heat conductivity.
  5. If your laptop is still under warranty, you can take it to any Toshiba Authorize Service Provider and fix the problem at no charge to you.
Hope this helps! Thank you for using FixYa!

Latitude e6500 runs hot how do i boost the fan


You may need to clean the fan and heatsink of dust. See the dust restricts the cool air from reaching the heatsink and this in turn causes your fan to spin faster. The computer's BIOS is programmed to increase CPU fan speed as CPU tempreature increases. If your fan is very loud, then it is running at the maximum speed possible. A clean heatsink will decrease the Processor's temperature.

Installing additional fans in your computer's chassis is an effective way of bringing the temperatures down. Install the biggest fans that your chassis supports. 120mm fans are better than 80mm fans as they can spin at slower speeds to provide the same airflow of a smaller fan. Therefore giving you a quiet computer.

Use a program called Speed Fan to ensure that your fans are indeed running at the desirable level of 100%

Take care!

Hi, I have an HP Pavilion a367c and the CPU fan is making a lot of noise. The noise comes and goes but "go" periods have been getting shorter :( . I think the bearings are dying. It looks like a typical...


I was going to say dust is whats causing it but then i relized you have opened your computer. So nevermind that.

The fan speed is controlled by the motherboard. The Pentium 4 processor tells your motherboard how hot it is. so then the motherboard turns up the fan faster. Thats why its louder when the CPU is doing alot and is quieter when its doing nothing. You can try replacing the fan yourself but i would recommend just getting a whole new heatsink.

I need a circuit diagram about heatsink and fan of the computer.


The heatsink doesn't use electricity, and the fan just has a motor inside that spins the blades, with a positive and negative wire going to it. Not much of a diagram to make...

Here's how a heatsink works though: http://www.overclock.net/faqs/115016-info-how-does-heatsink-work.html

Looking for cpu fan or combo heatsink for a foxconn mother board


CPU heatsink/fans are usually sold as a unit at Newegg.com, tiger.com as well as al other computer supply places. Fan and heatsink are specific and  must match CPU and socket.

Alright, Ive gone through this company before for my own cooling needs with my Micro System. SO i trust them.

Here is just a few idea's. Im not sure what your budget is (if you have one, i wish i had none lol)

For your Video Card
http://www.frozencpu.com/products/7466/ex-blc-485/Innovatek_Cool-Matic_9800_GTX_Full_Card_Liquid_Cooling_Block_501367.html?tl=g30

CPU
http://www.frozencpu.com/products/8208/ex-blc-541/Enzotech_LUNA_Full_Copper_CPU_Liquid_Cooling_Block_-_Socket_775_AM2_AM2_940.html?tl=g30

And the Rest of the case, to keep everything on Ice for smooth performance
http://www.frozencpu.com/products/2385/ex-wat-76/Swiftech_H20-APEX_ULTRA_Series_Liquid_Cooling_Kit_Universal_Mount.html?tl=g30

These are my suggestions. Take it or Dont. I would use those in a a Full ATX system in a heartbeat, i do use the Video Card Coolant piece as we speak, because, as everyone knows.... Micro systems generate a lot of heat in a super small space. Torching ones system is never what the person wants.

Most CPU fans come with the heatsink. Try not to buy a fan that comes with a grill over it. That slows the fan down & makes the fan work harder.

Good luck!
