Question about ASUS Neptune K7 CPU Cooling Kit
I was sitting in my house and in some moment i hear that the cpu starts to make noise and what happened is took it apart and checked what could be the problem. On one of the cards there is a small box about the size of the QWAS keyboard keys. and on top of it or inside of it there is a fan which is making all this noise,i seem to get it to stop if i touch and let go ,but it does the same after a while. I thought i could get some software maybe the fan control 4.30 ,but it is not supported by my card I Think,but not positive. and then i tried asus smart doctor which is not supported with my card either. So pleas if someone is able to define what to do .... Thanks in advance
Actually this is a common problem on ASUS boards with a chipset fan. The fan begins to wear out and starts making a noise that is intermittent at times. The only real solution is to replace the fan which requires the motherboard to be taken completely out of the case. An alternate solution would be to disconnect the fan BUT you run the risk of overheating the chipset. My experience, however, is unless you are using your computer to its extremes, you won't cause any damage. Note, that is my experience and you do so at your own risk but like I've said I have never had a problem with that at all.
