recently i installed a new motherboard and put in a new power supply that was bigger then my old one. since then, the case fan has been running constantly and won't shut off. before it would only run when the computer was hot, but now it isn't hot and it still keeps on running & its really loud.. i'm thinking the sensor is broke in the fan, and i was wondering if its okay to just disconnect the fan and use the computer until i can buy a new one? im not sure if its required and my other computer doesn't have a fan and it works fine.. thanks for any replies

Something you might do is download speedfan and run it in the taskbar. Check temps with fan running for a few days and then disconnect the fan power and see if temps rise. One thing is a newer MB may be using more power so it is getting warmer in the case. Larger PS's also run warmer so it may be contributing to the heat.

If the temps are running closer to 60° then it might be advisable to run the fan. One thing you can do is run a manual speed controled fan and adjust the speed for noise and cooling as you see fit.
