Cpu fan noisy /chip fan fail

Hello,
it all started with my cpu fan giving out an awful noise.then i started getting error messages "cpu fan fail or speed low" inspite of the fan running. i researched abt the problem and found out tht i may have to " clean or oil" the fan.checking the cpu temp was another thing recommended . cleaning the fan proved useless.also, the noise was intermittent and a tap on the side of the cabinet silenced it sometimes. to get a better picture i downloaded asus-probe and found out tht the cpu temp was well within the desired range( 42 c max).i lowered the fan speed in the bios from 1200 to 800 rpm. the error messsages continued for some time. all of a sudden i get error messages "chip fan fail" .i checked that the chip fan isn't running. but it does after i reboot it after a short time. now the frequency of the chip fan failing has increased and also it doesn't start always at reboot. the entire process of chip fan failing and starting is intermittent. the temp ,voltages,fan speed is well within the normal range as per the asus probe. is the problem with cpu fan/ chip fan/ smps(power supply) or plain loose connection somewhere. plz lemme know if anyone figures it out.ty

    hi geno69,

    ur opinion was seconded by a number of people. but of late a new aspect has come fwd.the chip fan fail error message is constant.on visual confirmation, the fan is found not working. the noise from cpu fan has disappeared now totally. the chipset fan starts working abruptly after some time of booting the machine ( not always). wht's on your take on this?

You must buy a new CPU Fan. You can get them HERE or a zillion other places on the Internet. You need a Socket 939 type fan that will handle your cpu speed. If you need help installing it, it may be in the manual. You can read the manual by clicking on the picture of your MB at the top of this post and then scrolling down.

Hope that fixed ya...

Gigabyte H55M USB3 Buzzing/Beeping problem.


Hello here is the homepage.

http://www.gigabyte.com/products/product-page.aspx?pid=3444#dl

The most common problem is a fan that's failing, or a wire which is hitting the fan blades. There are usually 2 fans: one for the power supply and one for the CPU. If one of these fails completely, its dangerous -- the computer can overheat and basically burn up.

Another possibility is a failing hard drive (the bearings can make noise).
This could also be the graphic card fan failing, or the powersupply fan
( Bad bearings )
If so, it must be renewed.
Try also to blow the case out for dust, with compressed air. ( if any )
Especialy the cpu fan.

Good luck

Processor fan is very noisy from start up to all the time I am on line.


Hi,

Good day , you may need to power-off her PC, open it up, and give it a good cleaning with a vacuum cleaner. If possible, after you've got her PC open, and before you clean it, turn it back on so you can figure out which fan is causing the noise problem (many PCs have more than one fan). If it's the CPU fan, then you're going to want someone who is comfortable and experienced with removing it and replacing it with a new one, because it is EXTREMELY important to get 100% physical contact between the CPU chip itself and the cooling fan/housing that is attached to it, or the CPU is going to overheat and destroy itself within seconds of being turned back on. If the noise turns out to be from a normal case cooling fan (3-5 inches across), you can try cleaning it really well to remove any dust, and see if that fixes the problem. If not, you can buy a replacement fan of the appropriate size at pretty much any PC store for $5-$20. It takes 5-10 minutes to unscrew the old fan and install the new one, and just use the same electric wire from the old fan for the new fan.
If the noise turns out to be from the computer's power supply, you cannot repair it, so it needs to be replaced. I would recommend either replacing it yourself, or having someone who has done it before replace it for you. There's usually only 4 screws that hold the entire power supply box in the case, and then you also have to unplug the power cords that go from the power supply to the hard drives, floppy drive, CD drive, other internal peripherals, motherboard, and fans. Carefully remove the entire power supply box from the PC case, being careful to not scrape it or bang it against any of the memory cards or other internal components. Take the noisy power supply with you to a discount computer store and find a new power supply that's the same physical size and at least as many watts as the current one (usually 350-500 watts). If you go with a generic power supply, it will probably cost around $30. If you go with a name brand, high-wattage power supply, it can cost $100 or more. Hope this information help you in resolving your issue. Have a great day.

I would try pulling and reseating your memory chips...they are picky sometimes. And be sure it is not plugged in and that you touch your table to release any static before you pull those chips

Cpu fan noisy/chip fan fail error messages


pils,

Yes. This sounds like a fan issue. The noise often comes from bearings failing within the fan. Also, a failing bearing can make things harder on the motor as it brings the fan up to speed. This is likely the reason that you see increased warnings during the fan speed check while booting because it comes to speed more slowly as bearing wear increases.

I give this a 90% chance that your CPU fan is causing the issue. Since a decent CPU fan will cost you ~$20 online, it's not much out of your pocket if you happen to uncover another culprit.

I'll keep an eye on this post. Let me know how things go.

Mother Board Fan Making too Much Noise


There are 2 main reasons for the CPU fan to run noisily.One is that there is film of dust accumalated on the cooling fins thus not allowing air to circulate and cool the CPU properly.The second is that perhaps the fan needs to be oiled because the sleeve bearing has gone dry.The most common problem for a noisy CPU fan is accumalation of dust.You will have to remove the fan and clean it thoroughly with a soft brush.
