Default WHY ARE MY FANS SO Loud

Hey guys, I got a question, recently, I brought my comp to gets its motherboard replaced, anyways, before I did that, the fans on the computer would be pretty quiet, but when they replaced it, the are going full blast. Here are the temps of the case(26 degrees celecius) and the CPU(37 degrees celsius). this is driving me insane

Well, perhaps your system was overheating before, and the fans were kicking in to keep it cool. 26 degrees for the case is extremely cool, is it noisy now?

You can clean the fans with canned air and it might solve the problem.

Your old mobo was probably controlling the fanspeeds, and the new one is not. Try going into the BIOS and taking a look.

well that was my first guess. you can buy a hardware fan controller if you just can't take the noise. you could also replace the fans with quieter ones, try a software controller like speedfan or turn some music on

Does SpeedFan EVER work like it's supposed to? I haven't seen it do that yet.
