Its a typical failure of MSI fans from those times. Unfortunately the exchange part will not solve your problem. (I read it in comments lots of times.) I own a VR610 and fixed the problem with grease. I disassembled the fan and took out the paddle wheel. I cleaned the pin and the hole both and filled the hole with grease. I used small portion of (lithium based) grease like on bicycle. The fan is noiseless since 1,5 years. :)

    Pull gently fan. Clean it very well. If you can put the Teflon plate with a suitable hole diameter and suitable size and thickness of no more than 0.3 mm of the rotor axis. Lubricate the fan with a little fine grease (not oil).

Your fan speeds up and slows down in response to temperature inside the computer. More so the CPU.

I would suggest getting a can of compressed air made for computers

take it outside, take of the side and blow all the gunk out of there, Really go to town around the fan (you might want to wear eye protection)
While you are in there just check that the CPU cooler itself is not loose

If it is it will have to be re-seated.

If it needs re-seating don't just take it off and put it back on as that might make things worse with your temperature problem the have to be cleaned and new thermal grease put on

I think this may be your problem before you buy a new CPU make sure you check the cooler assembly and make sure you use new thermal grease ($2-5)

DON'T remove the CPU just the fan/cooler assembly.

You must clean both the surfaces without scraping anything off. Use isopropynol alcohol and cotton bud sticks until both surfaces are clean, you can use your finger nail to scrape harder residue if you wish but nothing else.

DON'T pour the alcohol over the CPU

Now apply some new thermal grease (most computer shops have it)
Be careful about how much you put on
Here are
some basic instructions

Once you have re-assembled your cooler and re-connected it check everything is OK and power up the computer.

If everything went to plan you should now be back in business

As the temperature of the cpu gets high the fan increases its speed to lower the temperature

this increase in fan speed causes noise

yes you can buy a fan that makes less noise

or u can lower you fan speed either through the bios or through a fan control software
remember by lowering the fan speed the cpu temperature will increase

There is probably too much build-up of dirt on the fan causing it to be out of balance... and vibrate & make noise.
First, do not take apart the laptop.
Use a can of compressed air ($7 Radio Shack, Best Buy, etc).
With power OFF, spray a few times into the vents (use the plastic nozzle tube on the can). Once done, power ON the laptop and wait for it to settle down (see dust fly??)...
Now spray again & power OFF.
The noise should be diminished.

Use the laptop on a flat surface, not on a pillow or carpet. The vents must not be obstructed.....

Why isthe fan on my new panasonic Genius over the range microwave is noisy NN-SD277

Check to see if the vent is not jamming the motor. It could be something fell into the fan blabes. It could be a noiy motor and this would be a warranty issue.

Hello, My modell is unbearable noisy while cooling the videocard, what can i do? Thanks for the answers

My laptop msi 6837D Intel Core 2 DUO CPU 2.0 GHZ, TYPE T5750
ON LITTLE GAP SHAPE U PUT SHORT SCREDRIVER AND TAKE OUT PLASTIC COVER, this plastic cover is having around little clips/ ears.
FAN HAVING 4x very little screw- use magnetic scredriver.
Between sheetmetal and plastic insert 9cm long plastic pipe already fixed with WD 40 spray( or Astral ,...) , push him to side where is axis for fan , bottom side and spray only 0.5 s. Turn laptop back to normal position and oil will be slowly fallen down, still turning fan with finger for little while. Try again second time and will be enough oil for fan. Dont spray from air have to be long pipe touching axis with bearings.
IF is still very noisy the FAN so probably is too much worn and have to be replaced by new.

My lg express dual fan is noisy. i did apply WD-40 but still is? how can i replace it and where can i buy the parts online?

You can get some PTFE precision fluid from Maplin / RS / Ebay that helps to calm noisy fans. Worked for my old MSi netbook machin. You may be able to get a new fan from ebay etc.

Nutone WA6500 range hood fan motor noisy

We have the same product, 18 months in use and the very noisy motor has finally seized up. I contacted the manufacturer and was advised that I need a new motor, motor mounting bracket and fan rotor. The agent was not able to quote me a price for the parts but stated that even though my 1-year warranty had expired, if I faxed them a copy of the original sales reciept they could possibly send me the parts for free under the original warranty agreement. I've done as they asked but haven't received a reply as yet. After reading about all the problems with this product I'm tempted to dump the whole unit and try to find another manufacturer that has a reliable and QUIET range hood.
