    Default I7 Stock Fan

    Hi, has anyone had issues with the stock fan that comes with the i7 cpu?

    I've just purchased a i7 930 cpu and the healtsink either keeps coming loose or making a rather strange 'ticking' sound. Sometimes the fan just ceases to start up entirely when powering the PC on.

    The 'ticking' sound doesn't come from a cable touching it. I'm assuming the heatsink is coming loose because when I stand the case vertically I get the ticking sound and the fan appears to be slower, but if I lay the case down it goes away and the fan spins faster.

    I have reattached the heatsink a few times and the problem goes away temporarily, but this is becoming a really annoying issue.

    Any thoughts?

    Is your time worth ten dollars? Is your new i7 930 worth almost three hundred dollars? Before going further check your cpu socket for damage [$60].

    The Cpu + socket seem fine...

    I'll look at getting another fan. Can someone suggest a sufficient, preferably cheap fan for a non-overclocked i7 930?
