My fan is Running Too Fast And Loud

Recommended Posts


When I launched my stationary PC this morning, there were some books on the keyboard so it started beeping, i don't know which buttons the books were on and my fans started running so fast and extremely loud.
My pc have 3 fans, 2 of them are running on 3XXX RPM and the other one on 5XXX RPM (, I tried to slow them by using speedfan but it didn't work.

Anyone knows what's wrong?

Was this in Windows when it sped up? How are your system temps? Might be an option in BIOS for it.


I don't think any key would make it go faster. Unless it was just a coincedence?

Hmmm mmmm.


Computer make/model or motherboard? Any 3rd party software which might be ramping up the fans? Or as mindovermaster said... something in the BIOS.

Dust or other blockage within the heatsink fins?

Dried out thermal paste?

Might also be a contributing problem.

I'm guessing you didn't restart the computer to see is a booted state helped.

(I'm also guessing someone else will turn up in a few days with links to the perfect solution)

      Story of tails, windows and how it impacts integer factorization..
      In other words, MILESTONE has been done

      From the very start of my journey to discover the innards of stubborn IF, the prime goal was to have
      developed binary-search-tree algos. At some point, it seemed utterly impossible. But here we go..

      Actually, algo consists of three stages..
      it picks initial (probable) Z’s (pZ_L and pZ_R) up (Z = P + Q, N = P*Q). So, now algo needs to guess which one is closest to original Z. for pZ_L, it generates N_L which is closest to N from left/right and the same way for N_R of pZ_R. for N_R/L, it collects statistics of bit windows against N (their positions, widths..)..  
      Window(N, EntryPoint, Width) == NOT Window(N_L, EntryPoint, Width).

      For instance, let Window(N, EntryPoint, Width) == “010”, then Window(N_L, EntryPoint, Width) == “101”. And now it’s possible to choose probable Z according to collected statistics for given iteration.

      For tests, RSA-150 ( has been taken, criterion to go left/right is widths of greatest windows. Output…

      Wrong turn @ 40
      Wrong turns == 40
      nice turns == 208
      Total iterations == 248

      In short, algo doesn’t do gaps (good and bad turns ain’t shuffled/mixed) even with such rather primitive criterion.

      AMD introduces the 64-core Ryzen Threadripper 3990X for $3,990
      by João Carrasqueira

      AMD is starting off 2020 with quite a bang. After it introduced the Ryzen 4000 series mobile processors, the company also announced the latest member of the Ryzen Threadripper family.

      The AMD Ryzen Threadripper 3990X is the world's first 64-core, 128-thread HEDT processor, with a base clock speed of 2.9GHz and a boost speed of up to 4.3GHz. It also has a total of 288MB of cache. All of this amounts to a huge bump in performance over AMD's next best HEDT processor, the Threadripper 3970X introduced late last year. Specifically, in Cinebench R20, the Threadripper 3990X gets an average score of 25,399, whereas the 3970X gets 16,334.

      Of course, AMD also compared the chip to its competition, except there's no direct competitor. Instead, the company compared the processor to a setup of two Intel Xeon Platinum 8280, which have a combined total of 56 cores and 112 threads. For the same V-Ray workload, AMD's chip took one hour and 3 minutes to complete the task, while the Intel setup took one hour and 30 minutes.

      What's especially impressive about that, of course, is the price. The two Intel Xeon processors would have cost you $20,000. From that perspective, the $3,990 price of the Threadripper 3990X starts to seem justified.

      If you work with this kind of workload and you're interested in the new Threadripper 3990X, it'll be available in almost exactly one month, on February 7.

      Intel issues sincere apology for CPU shipment delays
      by Boyd Chan

      Back in August, Intel finally detailed what it had in store as far as 10nm laptop and desktop CPUs are concerned in the form of its 10th-generation "Ice Lake" series of chips. Unfortunately, for Intel, extensive delays in being able to meet mainstream demand for its parts may have driven increased frustrations experienced by its partners.

      Now, in a letter published by Intel Executive VP and GM of Sales, Marketing, and Communications, Michelle Johnston Holthaus has said:

      The Executive VP also noted that while CPU supply had improved by "double digits compared with the first half of this year", tight supplies have led to delays in part shipments and subsequent impacts to its customers. Furthermore, in a move that may help placate its customers, representatives from Intel would soon get in touch to directly answer questions and provide more information.

      While Holthaus rounded out the letter by saying that the company would "continue working tirelessly to provide [...] Intel products to support your innovation and growth" it remains to be seen how well it will weather the challenge been brought on by a resurgent AMD in addition to mobile processors.

      AMD's Ryzen 9 3950X CPU is coming on November 25
      by João Carrasqueira

      Today, AMD introduced the third-generation of Ryzen Threadripper processors for creative professionals, starting at a whopping $1399. But if you don't need that much power, AMD also announced the release date for the Ryzen 9 3950X CPU, which was announced in June and later delayed.

      As the top-tier offering in the Ryzen lineup, the Ryzen 9 3950X has 16 cores and 32 threads, with a base clock speed of 3.5GHz that can boost up to 4.7GHz. It has 72MB of cache and 44 PCIe lanes in conjunction with an X570 motherboard. The TDP matches the Ryzen 9 3900X at 105W.

      Just like the new Threadripper CPUs, the new AMD Ryzen 9 3950X is coming on November 25, and it will cost $749 - a significant step up from the 12-core 3900X, which cost $499 when it was announced.

      For "mainstream" desktop computers, AMD also announced a new Athlon processor today, the Athlon 3000G. It's the first Athlon processor based on the Zen architecture that can be overclocked, and it also comes with Radeon Vega 3 graphics. It has two cores and four threads running at 3.5GHz. The TDP is just 35W and it will cost $49 when it launches on November 19.

      Finally, AMD also announced an update to the AM4 platform, which both of the aforementioned processors are based on. The company recently released AGESA version 1004 to its motherboard ecosystem, with a wide range of stability improvements. AMD recommends users check its Reddit profile for more information.

      YouTube is rolling out Super Stickers for eligible content creators
      by Paul Hill

      YouTube has announced that it is rolling out Super Stickers to eligible content creators in 60 countries. Customers will be able to purchase different stickers to use during live streams and Premieres. The firm hopes that Super Stickers will build on Super Chat, which lets fans purchase messages that stand out within live chat and Premieres, ultimately boosting revenues for creators.

      In order to use Super Stickers, you must meet the criteria, if you already have Super Chat on your channel then you’ll be eligible for Super Stickers too. According to YouTube, Super Stickers can be enabled at the “click of a button” and are already enabled if you’ve previously switched on Super Chat. End users can easily send stickers by hitting the “Show your support” button next to the emoji button in live chats. From there, you can choose to send a Super Sticker. You can pick from eight packs and each family of stickers has variations at different price points.

      In order to make the stickers more inclusive, YouTube will make those with text available in several languages including English, French, Japanese, Korean, and Portuguese. Over time, the company also plans to add additional sticker packs to make the feature more expressive for users.

      It’ll be interesting to hear about how successful Super Stickers become. YouTube said in its announcement that Super Chats have already become a hit with more than 100,000 channels using the feature with the more popular streamers earning more than $400 per minute.
