Having problems with your Dell Precision Workstation 670 PC Desktop ?

Noisy piece of "Dell" lol

\015 This is charles516. some pc history. precision 670 board. i'm dealing with 2 precision computers. one died with bad caps. so i got a 670 board at a good price. free.. nice huh? vitually the same as the 470 board. so installed it into the 470 box. put in the 2-> 2.8 gig procs and the vrm. so far so good. starts up sounding loud like you'd expect. after boot up it gets to the normal sound but cycles as we all know they could. and not loud at all. no problem to me there. BUT, when it ramps up to speed it is deafening and cycles very loud at this rate and NEVER drops from this range of speed. By the way, the 670 board fit into the 470 box just fine if you didn't catch that. Only the primary cpu fan did the high speed thing. Not the secondary one. Hmmmm. So i put in the zeon 3.2 gig proc that i have and took out the 2 procs. , 2nd fan and vrm. Fan does absolutely fine and never does the high speed noise thing at all with a single proc in it. So, what do you think? Kick it to the curb? thx for looking at this. charles\015

Answers :

That's a confusing description of the events charles.

Have you identified the cause of the original problem - the dead caps? Is Over Voltage a possibility - have you verified the stability of the PSU?

Apologies if I've misunderstood.
