Question Cpu Fan

I'm currently running AMD Athlon 64 FX-55 proccessor. Recently i've been noticing that the CPU fan (that came with the proccesor) sounds like its under alot of stress. I'm currently/nor have I been overclocking anything in my system. I don't really leave my pc on for long periods of time maybe a day or two then I turn it off.... The loudness of the fan is the worst when I first start my pc, sounds like its going to fly away or something. Any help would be apperciated, thank you

Take the fan off and check it, clean it, or something is blocking the air flow. Maybe the temperature is getting warmer, so it's spinning faster?

Check the speed that the fan is spinning. If you don't have a software that tells, you can try:

I know wiht my old motherboard the CPU fan would spin at full speed on bootup then slow down after a few seconds or so. Did you upgrade/switch out any hardware recently? Or did this problem just start happening out of the blue?

A fan controller would also help keep speeds where they should be if you're willing to spend between 20-40 bucks.

Temps 1 and 2 must be false readings. 126 degrees Celcius would burn up whatever that is.

its what the program says, but it doesn't seem to fluxate and when first turned on it starts at that. Mine slows down from time to time, but on bootup its the worst. But it still sounds really bad

I have this with my old pc and im trying to sort it out too. I think i need to replace the thermal pad because its gone really hard. Have you replaced yours? try that and see if it fixes it.
