Find Out How to Replace your Desktop Computer’s Fan
Last Updated a year ago
Healthy PC’s normally run pretty quietly. They should operate in a very cool and calm manner. Although sometimes, we begin to hear strange noises emerging from the depths of our computers. If you hear scraping, wheezing or whirling noises coming from the back end of your computer, there’s a good chance that we can easily diagnose what your issue may be. You can probably trace these noises directly to your desktop’s fan (or fans).
If you notice that these noises are directly coming from your desktop’s fans, then you can perform a simple desktop fan replacement to take care of the problems for good. Simply uninstall your old fans which are likely failing, and take note of their makes and models. You’ll want to pick out NEW fans which are of the exact same specifications, then install your replacement fans.
Case fans and CPU fans are the two classifications of fans which you’ll likely be replacing. Additionally, there are also video card fans, chipset fans, and a power supply fan (this usually requires a power supply replacement).
To get started, you’ll essentially just need a Phillips screwdriver and your new, replacement fans in order to perform the desktop fan replacement. Just figure out which fans need to be replaced, and the rest of the job is self-manageable. And it’s definitely a job that’s worth performing as soon as you realize that your desktop fans are burning out.
If you’re suffering from a noisy desktop computer, you need to check your fans to see what the deal is – immediately. When your fan is noisy, it’s unlikely to be delivering the necessary cooling-power to your system. This can result in a total system failure, once your system’s parts begin to rapidly overheat. Simply replacing your desktop’s fans will be a much easier process, rather than having to replace numerous other desktop parts. Desktop fan replacement is the way to go, and can solve a lot of future issues.
