I've had my computer for about a year. It runs Windows 8 and is very fast. A very good computer.
But now, after being about one year old, it does something it has never done during it's first year.
Sometimes, it'll make a loud fan noise (it's gotta be the fan. It's not a clunking noise or anything. Just sounds like a lot of air is being pushed around mechanically.) The noise only last for about 5 seconds.
The noise only happens when I'm doing something that takes a lot of computing power like, rendering HD video or producing music with LOTS of audio samples, and sometimes running a virus scan. If I'm rendering a video, and it takes 30 minutes to render, it'll make that 5 second noise about 60 times during those 30 minutes.
It pretty much will never make the noise when I'm just watching videos or surfing the web.
It sounds like a normal problem to have. When I use more computer power, the fan needs to cool faster. But I only worry because it never did this the first year I had it and I did the same type of things on it.
Should I be concerned?
