CPU Fan is it required.

Recently I took my computer back to the shop where I got it from with a very noisy CPU fan. The engineer in the shop said that for my processor 1.6 Pentium 4 I did not actually need a CPU fan and removed the faulty fan. He said there was no need for a replacement fan as the air flow around the mother board and CPU was enough. Is he right or should I go back and get him to put a new CPU fan in?

I would never run a cpu without cooling

Definately wrong

Get him to put a replacement on it as soon as possible

Tell him to put his finger on the CPU when its running.

The engineer wants his head examined. Why does he think the manufacturer put one on in the first place and how does he know that the normal location of the pc has a good airflow. Suggest you insist he fits a new fan. Meshuga.

it sounds like he's in the business of making profit, when the processor dies you go back to him and his profit goes up again.

dont even turn it on without - if possible go somewhere else for a fan.
