The post begs for the obvious answer: Replace the fan.

Now to be more polite, first you need to identify the failing fan and replace it.

A desktop system can have several fans. Case/processor fan (you can test to see if this is the effected fan by unplugging it for a minute or two from the motherboard (a couple minutes will not hurt the system).

The video card may have a fan on it (Often on the underside if a mini tower) Some video card fans can be easily removed but finding replacement fans can be a challenge. Normally if a video card fan fails, replace the video card.

Most often, the failing fan is in the power supply unit or PSU. If you are handy with electrical components, you can remove the PSU, remove the fan and replace it. If you are not handy electrically, replace the PSU.

Higher end system may have card cage fans to help cool hard drive/expansion cards and others have fans specifically to coll hard drives.

Most manufacturers have spare parts where you can buy parts or you can use google to find specific replacement parts or fan suppliers.

Cpu fan noisy in scaleo p


You can order and replace the noisy fan.
It is not difficult to do and requires minimum tools.
Just be sure any dust or debris is removed from heat sink fins, power supply and air vents in the case. Check clearance and dimensions before purchasing the new fan. Just like Goldie locks you want it Just right. Not to big and not too small.
If you blowing the Power supply out with compressed air. (always a dust magnet) Be sure to hold the power supply fan with a wooden dowel or anything to prevent blades from spinning. Be sure to do all this with the power off and unplugged. Compressed air can over rev the power supply fan and damage the bearings. (you'll have another noisy fan within a short time if you don't.)
Good luck hope this helps!

Noisy fans on a desk-top pc Model Acer Veriton 1000. Besides replacement for new fans, can brushless fans be serviced or lubricated?


The Veriton 1000 I have has 50mm fans (length and width). 80mm are the wrong size. They are 15mm thick, 12V, 0.2A. For some reason, these seem to be more expensive than many other fans.

Noisy computer fan

Fan noisy


Two common factors why CPU fans are noisy:

1. The collected dusts under your fans.
2. Your computer is running over the neutral power that your Power supply can handle, i.e. overclocking, high graphical games and videos.

solutions:
1. clean fans (power supply fans, exhaust and others)
2. replace CPU fans with branded and proven to be quite fans.. it may be an additional cost but proves to be very silent. :)

My fan is noisy. Where can I buy part with inst. instructions


Hi

Depends on which fan you are referring to, the case fan or the CPU heatsink and fan? Either can be purchased from a reputable computer centre or online.

Make sure you tell them the make and model to ensure they give you the right one!

Thanks
