Hey guys,

Im not very good at the hardware part of my computer career so I came to this section for help.

My processor fan (AMD Semperon 2800+) is very loud! and sometimes the computer makes a very loud noise in it.

I changed the power supply and the harddrive to no avail.

Can anyone help me out?

If your fan is to loud changinf the HDD and PSU wont help much, you could just replace the fan or the whole heat sink with a quieter model/version. Fans are cheap and HSFs are pretty reasonable.

Ill change the fan whenever I get the chance.

Somtimes when I use the PC tho, i hear like a rattling noise. I have no idea where its coming from, It can't be the PSU because I thought it was that and I changed it to a new one. I was just wondering because I want the PC to be reliable and not break down on me. I am getting decent temps (28degrees celsius - 32 degrees celsius.) with the case on.

You probably didn't seat the heatsink properly.

Well actually I got this PC from a relitavies boyfriend. He was having trouble with it so he gave it to me to have and figure out. He probably didnt seat it right. That fan and PSU came with the tower I found that unreliable so I replaced them and it runs fine now. The MAX temp im getting for my CPU is 35degrees celsius max and the low is like 27 in idle and the main board is like 35 degrees celsius so are those decent temperatures.

Yes, thats fine. You ideally want to keep it under 140F or 60C. Anything above that and then you start to worry. Although, I have seen a machine running at 210F and not melting :whistling:

If its at 60 you are screwed, but those temps are very good, surprisingly good actually but the cpu isnt that fast so the heat output should be reasonable.
