Hi guys, I really need some help on this. I have a 3.4GHz Intel LGA775 Pentium 4 processor, and my computer works fine until I play games. Whenever I play 3D games my cpu would make really loud noise, like it is going to explode. The noise really annoy me, can someone help on this? What is wrong with my cpu? Heat issue? I have an acrylic case with 5 fans, can someone please tell me what i should do to make the cpu less noisy or no noise at all when I play games? Does the noise mean the cpu is starting to heat up and the fan is working really hard to cool it down that causes the noise? I look inside my computer, and I notice one of the 4 black things that hold the cpu and the fan in place starts to shake, like its going to pop off. This happens when the noise is realllly loud. PLEASE HELP! :whistling: :blink:

You correctly assume that the cpu fan spins faster when the cpu heats up. The loose pin must be tightend. If it's not the heatsink is probably not sitting proparly on the cpu, causing extra heating ehich causes the fan to spin even faster.
