I built my own computer about a month ago, and have the Asus A8V-E motherboard on it. I have not had any problems with it before; but when I woke up this morning, it was to a weird noise coming from my computer. I opened it up, and noticed that one of the fans on the motherboard were making a weird noise. Im not sure what component it is because I don't recall seeing a fans on other motherboards like this. Its located directly south of the CPU Chip; almost directly under. Its about 2 inches by 2 inches in size and is silver (and has the fan on top). The fan was making a weird noise, and when I looked, it appeared to rotate, slow down, make the noise then begin rotating again. I unplugged that fan, and the sound stopped immediately, so I know its not a different component.
Has anyone heard of anything like this before? And how would I go about correcting this?
