    noisy


    ive had my computer about 2 years, i built it myself at the time it was pretty good, but then the other day i turned it on and my fan(cpu) has become pretty noisy,

    any ideas why or howi can stop it?
    im contemplating just shoving the PC under my desk instead of on top

    my two cents


    I would suggest checking the cpu fan...a bearing my be going out...or a wire may be clipping the fan.....it couldn;t hurt to get all the dust out of there ehtier. I had a computer that started making an awful noise and it turned out to be the bearing so i would start there. good luck
