Question about Dell Optiplex GX280 (99301) Motherboard
Hi - I have a Dell GX280 which has the loud fan issue..
I have replaced and upgraded the original heatsink w4254 to the G8113 and replaced the original fan w/ same model.
The fan is still running at a high speed - w/an above normal noise...
Do you have any suggestions on how to fix this... could it the motherboard? if so - do you know what dell replaced the problem boards w? (i.e. model #) I also did a bios flash today A03 to A07... :-0 but the fan is still not very quiet... your suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Try to press down on the hood of the cpu fan and see if it reduces speed and noise..

This program will control your fan speed based on your cpu temp. It's main use is to quiet fan noise.
