Hey guys, I got a question, recently, I brought my comp to gets its motherboard replaced, anyways, before I did that, the fans on the computer would be pretty quiet, but when they replaced it, the are going full blast. Here are the temps of the case(26 degrees celecius) and the CPU(37 degrees celsius). this is driving me insane

Welcome to BC! :thumbsup:

Really, I don't think we would be able to answer that for you. Perhaps you should ask the person who replaced the mobo for you.

Some ideas that come to mind are: Perhaps the fans weren't working correctly before, therefore your computer overheated and the mobo fried. Or, perhaps there is a way to adjust the speed of the fans, thereby slowing them down and in the process, quiteing them down. But without physically looking at your computer I would not know if there are ways to slow down the fans. Another idea is perhaps you have cheap fans, cheap fans don't last long and they tend to be loud. Big computer manufacturers use cheap fans as a rule.

Perhaps when they replaced the mobo they didn't apply the thermal paste to the processor properly causing more heat to be generated.

What temp is the processor running at?

It could be that the fans used to be hooked up to the motherboard and it was controlling the fan speed according to temps, but that they are now hooked directly to the PSU and are running at full speed all the time.

Ehh, i have decided to let the fans stay like that, considering that the CPU is running at 36 degrees celcius and the case at 25 degrees celcius.

Well, I know it has ben a long time, but I resolved the problem by replacing the heatsink, and WOW, what a difference.
