Ok so im running an i7-2600 3.4GZ not overlocked cpu , and due to me living in Greece and during the summer our temps can reach up to 45 degrees i was having problems with my cpu temps and decided to buy the Coolermaster V8 cooler , thing is that for the past week its been making extremes ammouts of noise even when doing simple tasks , like opening a game E.g , world of warcraft ( not involving battles etc ) and league of legends , but the noise is like its running on full load , im getting 35-40 temps at idle and 45-50 TOPS at full load when games are running , i really cant find an explanation as to why its been making so much noise lately , should i replace the fan with an aftermarket one? i tried cleaning it with a dust cleaner spray but to no avail! Any help is really appreciated , cheers!
Due to the fact that replacing its fan is really time consuming and im gonna get on the matter in the next couple of days ( need to unmount from mobo , open it up etc etc ) are there any other explenations\alternatives i could try for the momment? Anything about said PSI slot i could change?
I am not really sure as you have not mentioned what mobo you have. There might be something there that might give you an insight. I know my Asus board comes with a lot of software to check all sorts of things that are going on with my mobo.
Tha PCI slot fan controller, make sure it is not turned all the way up. I tend to use front of case or software fan controllers, my Antec KÜHLER H 920 comes with internal USB connection which means I can do all sorts of things. Does the CM V8 come with anything?
Foxconn H61MXV Not my brand of choice but have just had a look at your mobo manual and I noticed there is a utility called Fox one. have you got that installed. with it you can monitor fan speeds,temps and the like.
