Question about ASUS Computers & Internet
Fan speed increases for no reason.
Fan speed does increase for a reason.....heat. Check you BIOS settings and verify that the CPU temp is not getting too high. Desktop computers are dirt magnets. It is common for the CPU heatsink to get clogged with dust and dirt. This will reduce cooling and increase heat, eventually to the point that the fan will speed up. Get some electronic duster (canned air) and blow out the fins on the CPU heatsink. DO NOT remove the heatsink from the CPU. There is a special compound that is on the heatsink surface that allows proper heat transfer from the CPU. Removing the heatsink means that this compound is disturbed and would need replaced. Most users do not have this compound and thus should not remove the heatsink to clean. If the heatsink is so clogged that you cannot get the dirt out with canned air, you may be able to remove the fan from the heatsink, depending on the fan/heatsink design. Then you can use a brush to get into the fins to clean them.
