Thread: Noisy ePox Motherboard Problem




  1. #1

    Default

    I have an ePox 8KHA motherboard.

    The fan on the northbridge chip is occasionally noisy. Lately, it has been noisy all the time. I have tried to tighten the fan and secure the heatsink to the board better, but it continues to be noisy.


    Should i remove or unplug the fan? Will this hurt the MOBO at all?

    How do I solve this problem short of a new MOBO?

    The bearing in the fan needs lubricatin' or if that don't help (as maybe the bearing is to worn) just replace the fan itself.

    the northbridge fans are like 5bux, so if oil doesnt fix it, just buy another one

    you would probibly get better quality with an aftermarket fan anyway.

    40mm fans don't usually last long anyway due to their small bearings.
