Having problems with your Computer System Cooling ?
Tower fan runs continualy
\015 Hello its the first time I have owned a tower pc but have noticed that the fan runs continualy is this normal I have windows vista\015
It depends on the fan.\015\012Most built-in fans can have their speedaltere by the motherboard, if they are connected to it. If they are hooked up to the power supply, they will always run on maximum speed. I they are on the power supply, try attaching them o te motherboard.\015\012There's also a lot of fans that are set to one speed, for example 2000rpm, and they will never go faster or slower than that. The only way to get them to run slower is by using a fan controller. \015\012\015\012I hope this answers your question,\015\012Yannick.
