On my new computer, my fan(s) is/are plain LOUD! Using SpeedFan, I find that my temps are all under 32 degrees C under my normal use (IDK how accurate that is but the CPU itself says 27 C).
The fan doesn't sound unbalanced and it isn't making sounds in rhythm (Not the usual rrrrrrrRRRRRR... rrrrrrrRRRRRR... rrrrrrrRRRRRR... rrrrrrrRRRRRR), just a constant fan. I am thinking about oiling the fans, but I can't decide if it is the PSU fan or a case fan or the CPU fan. If it's the CPU fan I will most likely just replace that with a quiet fan. How can I tell which fan is making the noise (if not multiple)?
One thing that I am thinking may be the problem is my CPU fan isn't PWM so would swapping that out help? There is no "linear voltage" or etc thing in BIOS so I think it may be running at full speed. Also, I could have too much airflow because it is also making a whistling noise that you can hear close to it that sounds like when I accedentially put part of the side cover over my floor vent to get it out of the way.
