I saw this question and I thought I would share that I would go with the aftermarket fan. The cheap water may give slightly better proformance however, being cheap, if it leaks, your computer might sizzle. I am not currently updated on system cooling. If I find something else I'll try to let you know.

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.

My computer was in the shop for something unrelated to this problem and now that I have it back it (the cpu fan) sounds like I'm running a vacume it's that loud.


Hi Tim,

I can not say for sure that this is whats happening, but from your description, it seems logical.

After work is done on a computer, sometimes one of the ribbon (data) or power cables isn't completely secured. It can move around within the case, especially if it is transported (like back from a shop).

On occasion one of the cables comes in contact with a CPU fan (or any of the fans in a computer).If it does, the noise they make is horrendous.

Fortunately, the fix is easy. Get a flashlight and a screwdriver.
  • Open the box.
  • Switch the computer on
  • Locate the noise source if possible paying attention to the areas around the fans.
  • When you find it switch off.
  • If it was a cable just relocate it out of the way.
If this turns out not to be the problem, please comment back with more detail.

Best regards

Mike

I HAVE A COMPAQ PRESARIO SR1339UK, THE PLASTC


you can install an other cpu cooling.
You have to find out which socket the cpu got and the size .
it has to fits to your pc case.
Look for some videos on youtube .There are some good guidlines
for cooler installin.
A cpu cooler is not very expensive but most a time a lot better than the standart cooler.

The fan has given up and now serious heat build up. are fans readily available and can they be easily replaced?


If you are asking about a desktop PC, yes, they are really cheap and easy to replace. If you are asking about a laptop, it's a little bit difficult. You need to go to ebay and find a replacement fan and some laptops need complete tear down in order to replace the fan or cpu, etc. it all depends on the brand and model of the PC. Some are somewhat easy to reach the fan. I suggest you buy a Notebook cooling pad which cost really really cheap. Some are about $10. Of course there's nothing better than the internal fan of the CPU but it could be an option WHILE you take it to a repair center.

Foxconn CPU fan making noise


It sounds like the fan bearing is shot, I'd recomend not using the computer until fan is replaced.
yes it is possible to replace the fan, i would recomend that you replace it with an aftermarket cooler. all you need is what kind of CPU you have, then find out what kind of socket it is, from there you can find the cooler you would like.

System Cooling


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.

Cpu overheating


It is possible that dust got lodged into the fan bearing area. Remove the fan again and inspect the area where the fan spins with a magnifying glass. You may need to use compressed air to get the dust out. This may be followed by lubricating it with special oil or grease.

Overclocking


First off... be warned overclocking is not for the faint of heart... now let us begin...

MAKE SURE YOU HAVE ADEQUATE COOLING!!!!

I can't stress this out enough if you plan on overcloking it's worth spending some money on some fan's specifically a CPU fan to make sure it stays cool. A side effect of overclocking is increased heat.

Restart the computer and go into your BIOS. Look for the setting to change the bus speed. Depending on your specific CPU it should be 200 MHz (if it's not don't worry, most computers now are 200 MHz). There should also be an option called the multiplier. This one is usually unavailable. If it is available you have a high-end CPU model that is "unlocked".

THEORY:

The system bus is multiplied by the multiplier and gives you the resulting speed.

200 x 16 = 3200 => 3.2 GHz

IF your multiplier is unlocked you can increase it... it's not then we have to use the system bus.

When you change the system bus it increases the speed of everything in your system... that is the link in between  individual components. But it's a double edge sword... it will cause you system to become unstable more quickly and reduce the maximum overclocking potential.

PRACTICE:

Increase the bus speed 3~5 MHz at a time. Restart the computer boot into the Operating System and run applications you normally would. If nothing crashes, hangs, freezes, locks up... you can reboot the computer and increase the bus speed again. Repeat theses steps until:

a) reach a point where the system becomes unstable
b) you feel like pushing your system more is getting to risky


This is a very basic answer on how to overclock. For more information, guides and other goodies http://www.extremeoverclocking.com/ is a good website for more information and guides.

WARNING: If you push the system to far to fast without doing it gradually you can surpass the computer components limits and cause damage to the computer parts. I am not responsible for any damage that occurs. This is just a guide.
