    You didn't mention what type of system you have.
    Does your system support the "cool 'n quiet" functionality of ASUS boards? In other words, can you set this up in the BIOS where the speed increases as cooling is needed?

Are you sure there is enough thermal jel between the new cpu and the fan? If not, fan could not get enough heat and constantly tries harder. That thermal jel creates a better environment for the heat conduction so that fan could do less job and take out more heat at the same time. Hope this will help.

Many reasons could cause this
1. The CPU generates more heat, and needs better cooling.

2. The fan(s) are designed to spin faster, with variable setting.

3. The variable setting controls are not installed/turned up all the way.

In general: If your fans are spinning without grinding or squealing, this is a good thing. The noise may not be so appealing, but the fan is there to protect your investment.

Its safe to say unless your having instability issues, your new processor is asking for more cooling, and your fans are providing it. Which is a general plus.

The fan should regulate speed on its one. If the fan speed goes up and down, then you are fine.

Let us know
Good luck

Processor thermal treat error while booting


Make sure that cpu fans are running normally. Go to BIOS (generally with F2 on intel motherboards), and there will be information about cpu temperature, also fan speed (in RPM). If fan speed is 0 or very low problem is in cpu fan. (connection problem might be). If cpu fan speed is normal (high value) and cpu temperature is high, I will suggest you to open your PC case (or notebook) and see whether cpu fan is dirty or not. This is very common problem. If so, clean it.

Replaced motherboard and now fans are loud and fast


Check for proper connection, also check bios speed on fans and make sure heat sink is correctly installed... side note you have fresh item's and higher power faster speed... if there is a controller on fans lower them.

Sounds like a problem with the power supply based on what you've written. Could be motherboard too, but Power Supply is usually the culprit.

I'd swap it out to test ;)

Fan runs at very high speed


Hello

OK, firstly, if the CPU fan runs at high revolutions, it means that the CPU is very hot. The more heat on the CPU, the faster the fan will run in order to keep the CPU at the safe temp.

Hence, you will have to open up the case and have a look if the CPU fan housing is clogged with dust particles, this is usually the most common cause for the CPU to overheat. If you can see that there is a lot of use stuck to the fan, you will need to blow if off, i use a compressed air cylinder, it works great.

If there is no dust particles visible, you will need to put some new thermal paste on the CPU chip itself.

Try the first option, let me know what happens.

Kind regards
Andrea

It is not the memory causing the issue. You either have a clogged fan and heat sink or a bad fan. This will solve most heat issues with the laptop.http://www.diefer.de/i8kfan/faq.html

Install this software and put the fan on manual high. That should help a lot if the fan is still working.

High RPMs


Check all vacuum lines to make sure they are connected. Your problem may be in the transmission too.

FAn problem


I really doubt it. The printers run voltages up to 30 volts, and the rpms could not be enough to cool the CPU, which could overheat and be damaged or get its life shortened. And you would be sealing your printers doom.

Xbox cooling fan sounds louder than normal


Yes, the cooling fans are commonly loud. Your xbox has a sensor on it when the CPU and GPU heat up, the rear fans suck more air out by turning up the rpms the fans run at.

Cpu overheat


Todays CPU fans are set to automatically up their RPMs if the processor overheats or is overtaxed. But the trick is when the fan itself is not cooling enough but rotates and makes this sound like a heicopter. Since you see it turning, you may not realise its cooling is poor. The best and long last solution is get a brand new fan and install it. The baby will stop crying.

Good luck.
