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?
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.
