Re: compaq case fan

More than likely 80mm ... measure its diameter with a ruler that has mm on it.

I have an old gateway 7023ge computer and i wanted to find out the size of my cooling fans so i can replace them. i have 2 fans one front and one rear. they are both the same size.

Computer case fans for older computers were usually standard sizes of 80 millimeter or 92mm, maybe120mm. 25.4mm = 1 inch, so an 80mm fan is about 3 inches. Measure the diameter of the fan from the tip of one fan blade to the tip of the opposite fan blade. A 92mm fan is about 3 1/2 inches in diameter and a 120mm fan is about 4 3/4"

Again, these sizes are _nominal_, so whatever your measurement is closest to is what you need. You should be able to measure the rear fan from the outside back of the computer without taking anything apart.

Dimension 3000: P4@2.8GHz. NOISY - alway has been. Want to remove green shroud permanently, add quiet 80mm thermistor-controlled fan to CPU stock heatsink (without exciting a BIOS temp alarm), replace...

As for the green shroud, I would not recommend removing it. The computer case is designed to correctly circulate the air through the system and safely out. As for replacing the fans you can replace them with anything you like, just make sure the new fans are the same dimensions they come in szies 40, 60, 80, 92, 120, 140 and a newer 200 mm form factor so you can just measure them if you don't know the correct size. Next look at where the fans plug in, if it is a three pin plug then they fan's are kept at optimal speeds via the motherboard and bios. So they are already controlled by heat sensors / thermostat so to speak. If they are 2 pin then they just run full speed usually. For the back fan just make sure it is the right size and pin out. You can hook a 3 pin fan to a 2 pin fan plug on the board it will just run full speed all the time. For the CPU fan buy a combo fan/ sink and just make sure the sink is the same as the existing one so it will fit on the motherboard. You could probably get rid of the green shroud if you went with a really high end fan / sink for the CPU but that's up to you. For the thermal paste it is easiest to put a small blob in the center of the CPU and then use a plastic card, such as a drivers license to spread it out to cover the entire CPU, thinly and evenly. Add small amounts if you need to to cover the entire surface. Try not to have a bunch oozing out the sides although it won't really hurt if it is.

I need a fan for a IQ700 part GC125025VH-A

take a ruler, and measure the fan size. standard fan sizes in desktops are 80mm and 120mm, sometimes 60mm in diameter. I am not sure about that HP all in one PC you are dealing with though.

once you know your fan size buy it!

as long as the fan has this shape you connector you will be fine

Compaq Presario SR1365CL (4) yrs old, fan making annoying noice

Often you can blow the dust out of the fans and it will help. In your case the bearings have most likely dried up on a fan. First blow the dust out of all the fans. To find the offending fan you will have to block the blades with something. Once the fan is found you can either replace it with a fan of the same size or re-oil the bearings. To re-oil, carefully peal away the label on the fan. There might be a plastic plug over the bearing, carefully remove it. Drop a few drops of 4-in-1 oil or sewing machine oil into the bearing. Stick the label back on and put the fan back into the system. It should be much quieter now.

Fan Noise on Dell Dimension 8100

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.
