Do i need to replace my case fan?

  jay.p 20:21 05 Jul 2008

Pc wizard shows
Chasis fan 907 RPM
Power/aux fan 10 RPM
The strange thing is that the power/aux fan is blowing strongly out the back of the case.The chasis fan below it is only just turning,probably free wheeling due to the arctic freezer pro blowing through it.
Could Pc wizard have the readings muddled as it seems and is there another programme to check it.
Checked connections and all are ok.
I know fans are cheap and i assume it's a very easy job. Do they just stop working?

looked at the bios settings. Try that 1st you may come across other settings for the fan.

" Do they just stop working?". They can sometimes.

But as you say, they are cheap to buy. And replacement is easy, providing you take the necessary precautions.
