Hey there,

MY CPU fan is really loud (annoyingly so!). I checked using EVEREST what my CPU temperature is (30oC) and the CPU fan speed (3309 rpm). I was wondering whether this is too fast and whether I should lower the speed to stop or at least reduce the noise?

Any tips/hints regarding this would be great! :thumbsup:

Thanks
Jane

What kind of computer are you referring to. Be specific with the components (CPU, Motherboard, Memory, Video). If its a big box (Walmart, Bestbuy, Circut City, Dell, Gateway Etc..) computer give us the make and model number.

If you lower the speed of the CPU fan, it wont cool the CPU enough and it will increase in temperature. This will cause to less lifetime of the CPU.

Exactly AMD USES cool N quiet Technology to change the speed of the CPU fan. If its running full blast its because your processor is hot. You could try increasing the air flow in your computer case by adding more fans. How many fans do you have? What kind of case do you have?
