Hi, everyone:
;)
I have a sony PCV-RS720G pc. Its have a pent 4 3.0 Ghz with 512 mb of ram.
Here are all the specs-http://www.docs.sony.com/release/specs/PCVRS720G_mksp.pdf

anyway...my precessor fan is making the a lot of noise for no apprent reason. I use speedfan and my HD temp is always around 60 c. ;)

My cpu temp is always around 40, even if I dont do anything intensive.

The problem grew worse a few days ago when a power outage occured. :tazz:

The noise is unbearable....I have posted this on some other forums, and have tried anything....like clean the dust, etc.

So, is there anything I can do to slow down my fan and make it a little quiet?
or should I just buy a new one, if so can someone please tell me which to buy? I am a noob....

Somone said that I should just get rid of the fans and install a water cooling system but the systems look pretty expensive and I was wondering if there is a cheaper solution to my problem.

Thanks for all the help.... :help:

Sounds like the Fan on the Heatsink is going downhill to me.

Your temps arent bad tho..

Maybe something like this would help http://www.newegg.co...N82E16835118112

no, I called them and they want me to pay close to $100......for a fan and a heatsink....and extra for shipping and handling......

So, can you recommend another fan???? The guy told me that I had a intel 951 chipset based motherboard...whatever that means... :tazz:

Whats the socket type and mobo name and such get cpu-z nice little bit of software that tells you the basic info.
You just go on newegg or somewhere like that and pick an HSF that matches your socket. Either that or keep your heat sink and put on a new fan usually a 60mm or 80mm fan easily obtainable.
