Help With Fan Noise
I have had computers for about 6-7 years now, and most, if not all, computers have been afflicted by fan noise.
I always put it down to cheap parts and bad manufacturing, and left it at that.
But about a year ago, I built my first computer, and used a a silect case fan from a website (quietpc.com probably). Roughly 3 months ago, it started to make noise (more noise than a normal fan would).
I replaced it with a normal fan, which was better, but now that one has started to do the same thing.
They always seem to go after a certain amount of time has passed. I have tried cleaning them, using more/less screws to hold them in place (all 4 or 1 on opposite corners), all producing the same noise.
I currently have a bog-standard one in there now, which although is getting noisy like the others, it currently bearable.
Any tips or info on why they all do this, and how to remedy it?
Please ask if you need more info, but I may not be able to help. Some of the fans do not have boxes, and the ones that do have names different to the box, so I have no idea what is what. Rest assured I have about 5 case fans, and they all started off ok, but now make a lot of noise
