I have a Asus A8N SLI Deluxe installed in my computer and some days ago I started my computer and it started to make a laud noise. I isolated the problem to the small fan on the motherboard.

I quickly looked at your website and found a guy with exactely the same problem as I have. The post is called: "Motherboard fan problems"


The difference is that my noise didn't go away. I wonder is there something you could do...change the fan? And is it safe to remove the fan and check it or do I have to place metallmixture on the chipset, like I have to do with the processor when I try to put it back?

I hope you have some answers?

Kind regards Martin

First i would try blowing the fan out with some compressed air to get the dirt and lint out. It may fix it for a while. Next i would try and take the fan off the heatsink. If the heatsink comes off with the fan it is easy enough to clean the heatsink , put a BB size dab of thermo grease back on and reinstall the fan. You can get everything you need here.


and heres a chipset fan kit


Unfortunately out of stock right now.

Heres a 40 mm fan you could adapt.


or you might be able to adapt this cooler kit
