Loud fan - resolution?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hey everyone,

 

I am looking for some insight on a hardware problem I am having.

 

HARDWARE: I have the HP Omen Desktop.

 

PROBLEMYesterday I decided to move my desktop tower around in my room. Setting it down I ran into an issue: one of the fans is extremely loud. I've joked to my roommates my desktop is preparing to fire itself into space. I have not had this issue before.

 

The fan will become extremely loud even when I'm idling on the desktop.

 

WHAT I'VE ATTEMPTED: I have attempted to do a full system restore to see if a setting was changed. It did not resolve the problem. I opened the desktop and blew out the dust. No resolution. I didn't bump my computer when I moved it, so I'm not sure if the fan somehow got moved around?

 

WHAT I NEED HELP ON: I don't have any experience on these issues. Should I attempt to open the fan port and tighten screws? If that's how that works? I'm not too sure where to start, or if there's other things I can check.

 

Thanks everyone!

Well first off we have to figure out which fan is it.  A case fan or the CPU cooler fan or vide card fan.  You can open the case panel and with a soft object or your finger stop each fan until you see which one it is making the noise.  Just be careful don't cut your finger.


Asus Sabertooth x79 / 4930k @ 4608 @ 1.456v / Gigabyte WF 2080 RTX / Corsair VG 64GB @ 1911 9CL & AX1600i & H115i Pro @ 2x Noctua NF-A14 / Carbide 330r Blackout

AOC 40" 4k Curved / Samsung 40" 4k TV 120 MR / LaCie Porsche Design 2TB & 500GB / Samsung 950 Pro 500GB / 850 Pro 500GB / Crucial m4 500GB / Asus m.2 Card

Scarlett 2i2 Audio Interface / KRK Rokits 10" / Sennheiser HD 650 & HD 4.50BT SE / Logitech G910 & G700s & C920 / SL 88 Grand / Cakewalk / NF-A14 Intake / NF-P12 Exhaust

Oh, apologies.

 

It's the CPU cooler fan.

 

EDIT: The fan in the top left w/ the red box around it is the fan in question.
