Hello,

When I ran spybot - search and destroy everything was fine. Next thing is the CPU fan noise drops while half way through looking for problems.

Near the end of the detection the fan gets really loud until it has finished and then the fan returns to normal.


Anyone know what is causing this? :whistling:

It just sounds like your computer kind of went to idle in the middle then had to speed up to load the end of the program. Unless you hear the fan dipping out in the middle of games, or high intensity graphics programs, I wouldn't worry about it too much.

The fans increase and decrease all the time whether you hear it or not. It's just reacting to the load of the CPU (I'm pretty sure).

So honestly, in my opinion, unless you wanna dish out money for a new CPU fan (if you do get a Zalman), then I'd say just don't worry about it.

(My case has 5 fans: 1 side, 1 front intake, 2 rear exhaust, and one top exhaust so I can rarely hear my CPU and video card fans, but in my old compy, I know that they fluxuated depending on what was happening).
