Hi, have you checked for the Q-FAN in the BIOS (press DELETE just when you start the PC to get into the bios)... Also what you could do is install a quieter fan, from Asus you have the SILENTSQUARE which is very big and silent, if not you could try out ZALMAN too they have very good products that will keep the noise down... on the other hand here in Europe we have XILENCE, cheaper brand and very effective too. Check it out online or at your local store...

It depends on your CPU. As far as I know, some Pentium 4 has it - Enhanced Intel speedstep Technology. If your CPU supports it, you need to enable it in the BIOS. Good luck.

Fan slow down and them high speed

change the fan ASAP, since the zooming noise and the slow performance will affect even the processor and you might end up replacing the processor as well if it persists. So get the fan ASAP and problem will be solved.

How to upplug fan in desktop

How to Reduce the Noise of Your CPU Fan

The CPU fan is what keeps the processor of your computer cool while the machine is running. A noisy fan on the CPU can be very annoying for users of the computer. However, it can also be a sign of a dangerous problem in your system. If the CPU fan is making noise, it is probably not running at full capacity to cool the processor, which leaves your computer open to problems involving overheating of the processor. An overheated processor can be permanently damaged.
Step 1

Unplug the computer from the wall. Remove all devices from the back of the computer and move them away from the area where you will be working. Either wear an anti-static wristband or discharge any static by touching a metal part of the computer case.
Step 2

Remove the screws from the back of the computer case with a screwdriver. Pull the sides of the case off and set them aside. Lay the computer on its side so that you can easily see the motherboard and all parts connected to it. Locate the CPU fan; it will look similar to the image in the introduction.
Step 3

Ensure that no cables are hanging low and touching the blades of the CPU fan. Move any cables or other parts that could be hitting the blades of the fan causing noise. Tuck these cables and wires into an area where they cannot interfere with the CPU fan.
Step 4

Use a cotton swab to remove any dust that you can from the blades of the CPU fan. Don't use any harsh solvents or other cleaners that could drip down and damage the processor through the fan.
Step 5

Spray the compressed air into the fan to move the loose dust away from the processor fan. Move the dust into an empty section of the case with the canned air. Don't spray the air too hard or else you can spread the dust into other places in the computer.
Step 6

Use the vacuum cleaner to vacuum up the dust that you moved away from the CPU. Place a crevice tool or other attachment onto the hose to reduce the size of the opening and help ensure that you only remove dust.
Step 7

Replace the computer case. Plug the computer and all devices back in. Boot up the computer and check for reduced CPU fan noise.

Whenever I play video or work on my computer for an extended period of time there is a loud and very obnoxious noise that is intermittent. I believe it might be the fan

It is most likely the fan. When doing things like watching flash video (e.g. YouTube or Hulu), it uses a lot of CPU power, thus your fan needs to spin in order to keep your computer from overheating.

My cpu fan's speed is very high. i will produce too much noice. can i reduce my fan's speed?? if i reduced that then what happened?? is there any problem????

On my computer when I first power up the display screen gives me the main board details and an option to change settings on it by pressing an F Key. Does your computer do the same? If it does you should press the key and it will give you the options to control and alter things like fan speeds. Don't forget to check if dust or something else is causing the noise.

Cpu

The noise is coming from fan friction and vibration. Running compressed air through fan components can help reduce noise pollution from dust buildup. Brush-less CPU/GPU fans are significantly quieter than the brush-motor powered fans that come with some factory electronics. Furthermore, some computer cases are designed with noise reduction in mind; Antec designed cases are know for being one of the quietest because they use patented bushings to secure the computer hardware. Moreover, make sure internal wiring is free and clear of all fan blades.

Cpu fan noise problem

You should check and make sure the inside of your computer isn't dusty. Dust will wreak havok on fans and shorten their life. Plus it likes to build up between the fan and heatsink which will overheat your processor. Take the fan off and spin it with your fingers. I like to open the little sticker on the bottom and put some 3 in 1 oil to lubricate it. A smooth spinning fan is a happy computer. It also reduces noise that a dirty fan makes. Hope this helps you.
