Hi folks,


As the title suggests I've just done an air clean on my PC and after about an hour of use the PSU fan came on at high revs and now 30 mins later is still going. Previously it never came on at all so I'm assuming the two things are related. Any deas on possible cause/solution?

That is not unusual and there is nothing to worry about. Be careful when taking apart a psu, as the built up charges inside can kill.

Are you sure that it's the PSU fan...not the CPU fan...which is working harder?
