to disconnect the fan from my graphics card,it is making one hell of a noise!!!
Can you gat a replacement fan? Or does your guarantee cover it?
You could also get a fan that will go under it and use a PCI slot area, and expel air out of the back of you computer, you can pick them up for round £5.
Go here to see what I mean http://www.microdirect.co.uk/default2.asp and look under CPU then Fans at the Akasa System Exhaust Blower Fan £5.88.
cheers Garett,luckily my mate who built my pc owns his own pc company and i just rang him and i am upgrading the card tonight
IMHO those fans are big trouble... they don't though what they're supposed to (ie lower system temps) and make a heck of a racket! I got one and it raised my CPU temp by 5C!
Sorry but I've gotta ask how are you guys measuring CPU temperature
This is summat thats always puzzled me.
BIOS reports it, CPU has it's own thermal resistor thingy.
I use a little program called speedfan:
Works with most modern boards.
depending on which mobo you have, you can either see it in the BIOS or use the supplied software that came with it .. I use ASUS Probe , since I got an Asus mobo.
Ive just been in touch with my mate who knows something about computers; he said you would be better getting a replacement fan for you doggy one. The exhaust blower would not be good enough.
As to the cpu temperature rising, if the case has a perfect air flow adding a exhaust blower could alter this flow. But on my case it blows a lot heat out, and is directly under my graphic card.
