Thread: Why is the P4 3.0C ghz fan so noisey

    Hi Everyone,

    I was just wondering why is the P4 3.0C ghz fan so noisey? It seems to run over 4000rpms and is driving me nuts. Does anyone else have this problem? Or could it be a faulty temperature probe on the fan itself?

    And has anyone used a Zalman Fan Mate RPM controller to lower the RPMs? I might get one for a quick cheap solution for now.

    1. Intel Pentium 4 3.0C ghz
    2. Gigabyte 5900XT
    3. Gigabyte GA-8IPE1000 Pro
    4. Kingmax PC3200 DDR RAM (2 x 256mb on dual channel)
    5. Western Digital 80gb 7200rpm HD (8mb cache)

    I had same prob with retail fan on my 3.2 m8. It was like sitting next to a vacuum cleaner . Swapped it for a Zalman CNPS7000A-Cu Ultra-Quiet CPU Cooler - runs 10C cooler and amazingly quiet now (92mm fan fitted to it). :D
