I was sitting in my house and in some moment i hear that the cpu starts to make noise and what happened is took it apart and checked what could be the problem.
On one of the cards there is a small box about the size of the
QWAS keyboard keys.
and on top of it or inside of it there is a fan which is making all this noise,i seem to get it to stop if i touch and let go ,but it does the same after a while.
I thought i could get some software maybe the fan control 4.30
,but it is not supported by my card I Think,but not positive.
and then i tried asus smart doctor which is not supported with my card either.
So pleas if someone is able to define what to do ....
Thanks in advance

Re: Asus fan problem
Actually this is a common problem on ASUS boards with a chipset fan. The fan begins to wear out and starts making a noise that is intermittent at times. The only real solution is to replace the fan which requires the motherboard to be taken completely out of the case. An alternate solution would be to disconnect the fan BUT you run the risk of overheating the chipset. My experience, however, is unless you are using your computer to its extremes, you won't cause any damage. Note, that is my experience and you do so at your own risk but like I've said I have never had a problem with that at all.

More likely is that the computer cpu is overheating and the motherboard is ramping up the cpu fan speed to try to cool it, hence the high fan speed and consequent noise. This usually happens when the heat sink is clogged with a lot of dust. It could just be that the fan heat sink came loose.
It may be that it's just a noisy fan, in which case replace it with one that doesn't make as much noise.
The old addage "you get what you pay for".....It applies here. You can get 80mm to 120mm fans for under 20 bucks, but depending on how fast they have to spool up to keep the processor cool and how well their blades have been designed determines how loud they are, especially if they have been cheaply made....poor bearings and poor blade design equals noise. Bigger fans are actually a lot quieter because to move air they do not have to turn as many rpms. Get the biggest best made fan you can that will sit confortably in the case without interference. Also, download the little program called Speedfan, it will monitor fan speeds and system temps and make adjustments to the fans to keep them in the quiet range when possible.
Some fans are automatically temperature-controlled -- they speed up, and, of course, make more noise, as the temperature rises.
Background tasks, such as Windows Automatic Update and scheduled virus-scans, can cause the computer to become "busy" when otherwise "sitting unused".
Next time the noise increases, enter CTRL-ALT-DELETE and open "Task Manager", and click the "Performance" tab, to see if the CPU-usage is reaching 100%. Click the "Processes" tab, and then click on the 'CPU' column-heading, and click it a SECOND time, so that Windows lists the "top" consumers of CPU at the top of the list of processes. Which process is consuming the majority of the CPU?
Remove the label from the center of the fan. Look inside the hole. Some have a rubber bung in the hole. The fan is usually retained in the housing by a nylon washer with a split in it. Get something like a really thin blade/needle and you can ease it off the fan spindle without breaking it. It sits in a groove on the fan spindle.
All computer fans have a general design. The name in front of "fan" really refers to the designation. You'll see case fan, processor fan, CPU fan, cooling fan, etc. In the case of CPU/Processor fan, some are sold with heatsinks (the metal block sitting on top of your CPU).
The first thing you want to do is make sure the fan is clean. Chances are dust buildup is causing the excess noise.
If that's not the case and you're looking to replace the fan, then you first need to find out the size of the fan. General sizes(diameter X width in mm) are listed on this page:
Generally, you're looking for something that will match the size of what you're replacing & push enough air at a reasonable noise level to cool the heatsink/CPU. You want to stay in the area of 30dBA max for noise. You also want to see if it has a 3-pin or 4-pin connection.
For example, if you have an 80mm fan, I would suggest something like this:
It's pretty quiet with good airflow. Also, it has a 3-pin connection, but includes an adapter for a 4-pin connection.
