PC Ventilation not working correctly

  F7J4 13:47 18 Jun 2019

Hello, I'm having a bit of trouble with my PC's ventilation system. It's a bit hard to explain. My ventilation is weak(idk if theres a better term for it but it's silent and barely even on) when I use a program like Word or watch videos. It gets stronger or more active/louder when I play games or do something GPU intensive like it's supposed to. Now the problem is that for some reason, since a few days ago, the ventilation is strong and loud even though I've just turned my PC on or do something simple like Word or Excel. Though the noise doesn't bother me that much I'm worried since the case and everything is roughly at room temperature. I've asked a few people and I looked online but can't find anything.

First make sure there isn't a dust build up inside the machine that is causing the fans to come on because of heat

second you may need to check your motherboards fan control settings in the BIOS

Laptop or desktop?

How you use it and environment such as pets etc. can badly affect machines.

Sometimes, when the fins of the heat exchanger is encased, it is difficult to get the dust from between those fins. Pipe Cleaners are good for that.
