Hello guys:


Well, i have a really bad problem here...sometimes, when i play some games, my cpu starts to make some weird noises (i think it's the processor) like if something is stuck on the fan, like a trrrrrrrr (only describing the noise, i really don't think ther's any in the fan) and the game starts to slow down, really decreasing cpu performance :blink:

Sometimes it starts to make this noise even before i run a game, so i have no idea about what's going on...your help would be very much appreciated , and sorry about my bad english :whistling:

Could it be that your processor is throttling itself due to high temperatures? I suggest you take a look inside your PC, see if there's tons of dust choking everything. Make sure the heatsink is clean - just grab a can of air and use that to clean everything out.

Sounds like its either a cleaning probelm(lack of) or a busted fan, the cpu itself wont make any noise it doesnt have any moving parts(well nothing you can see)

Well, i think it could be because of the heat, it's near 80º when a game is running...and i don't see any dust, fan is working (i think fine), but heat is really high, so could that be the problem?
