Loud fan My emachine w3629 has a very loud fan. Is there a way to lower the noise?


Answers :

Hello
\015\012
\015\012I have a gforce 9600gt oc addition and that fan is loud beyound your wildest expectation, but although there is lots of utillities you can install to reduce fan speed thus reducing the noise, but can cause permanent harm to your system(it will most probably overheat). You can try blowing all the dust of the fan using compressed air to reduce the rolling resistance of the fan. You can find a fan speed utillity with the name of LG X110 fan utility from google, developed by msi, but i wount recomend it. Hope this can help you, please rate this
