    My computer is Loud... I thought it was like that because I have 8 fans in it... when I put my new vid card in, I turned on the computer and heard that my cpu fan is that one thats loud... I know this cause I spoted my cpu fan and then computer was quite then when I started the fan again the computer was loud again... this is the first time I've seen or heard this... is this normal or is there something wrong with the fan??

    Thanks guyz :D

    Some fans are very loud. I had a Volcano 6+ which turned at a constant 7000 rpm. It was very loud. I replaced it with a Volcano 7 which is variable speed and usually only spins at around 4000 rpm. Much quieter. Do you know what fan you may have?

    Is the fan big? How about the heatsink? Usually, big retail fans are loud; and don't do a very good job of cooling...if you aren't happy with yours, get a Volcano 7 or a Volcano 9...that should be somewhat quieter...

    no both fan and heatsink are not that big... but they are both doing the job... I have a program that comes with my motherboard that says the cpu is stay at around 44 degrees c. and no higher then 48 degrees....

    I think I'll look into getting a new fan and heatsink...

    thanks

    Hey, out of interest, what's the proggie that tells you the temp? I can't find out that will tell me. Mobo monitor doesn't show it ( or I just don't see it or can't figure out how to work it )
