I am using a Dell Dimension C521 Desktop and the other day I noticed the fan started constantly entering a cycle where it would kick into high speed and then slow down again every 2 minutes. After trying...


The fans change speed depending on the temperature the sensors detect.
Give your machine a thourough cleaning.
The CPU sensor is usually located under the CPU if it's loaded with dust it may think it's hotter then need be and kicks the fan up.

In my hp 61020 mt destop am facing the fan speed and noise is too high....any solution to this....


It may be just that the fan needs to be replaced.

More likely is that the computer cpu is overheating and the motherboard is ramping up the cpu fan speed to try to cool it, hence the high fan speed and consequent noise. This usually happens when the heat sink is clogged with a lot of dust. It could just be that the fan heat sink came loose.

It may be that it's just a noisy fan, in which case replace it with one that doesn't make as much noise.

CPU Fan sounds like a jet and computer won't start


It sounds more like the hard drive, the fan has nothing to do with your computer booting up. If the hard drive is starting to go bad it will not boot up, that's what it sounds like your computer is doing. I recommend checking out the hard drive and replacing it.

I have a dell Dimension 8400. The cooling fan


Hi:
Your cpu might be getting too hot...
If you have not done so, it would be a good idea to get some quality thermal compound,such as Arctic Silver, and carefully remove your heatsink/fan, clean the surface of your cpu, and the bottom of the heat sink, and re apply an even, thin coat of thermal paste. Reattach the heatsink/fan assembly, and reboot the computer. On start up, enter the BIOS and check the hardware monitor to see what the cpu temp is..Hopefully you will have it running cooler than it was.

Noisy fan


You need to replace the fan. Measure the fan you have now and buy one the same diameter. Then remove the old fan and put in the new fan.

Cooling fan Dell Dimension 3000


That is the correct way. It is a newer design that keeps the hot air from the CPU heatsink out of the case. 35C is a good temp.

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:

http://www.svc.com/case-fans.html

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.
