I recently find that my CPU fan is getting louder and louder. It is now so loud that I bother to type up a question on it.
But still, besides being annoying, I am not sure whether there is any other side effect of a loud fan, such as causing damages to my hardware. So my question is, is there anyway I can verify the correctness of the reading above, or is there any other thing I can do to reduce the noise level of the fan?
Edit: I have clean the dust on the fan ( there isn't a lot), and log into the BIOS. The BOIS stats are:
- System temperature: 37
- CPU temperature: 47
- CPU fan speed: 1044 rpm
- System fan 2 speed: 0 rpm
- Power fan speed: 0 rpm
- System fan 1 speed: 0 rpm.
Now, I wonder is it that my fan is failing? Because it seems that system fan and power fan are all 0 rpm.
