Weird fan sound - Noob here!

G10ac Asus desktop.   

 

This just started yesterday. The fan in the photo is making the noise. This noise is not represented well in the video, camera just picks up on the main fan too well I guess. You can kind of hear it. It is like a very fast paced clicking sound, not as "bassy" as it sounds in the clip. If I push on the middle of the fan to stop it real quick, the sound dissapears completely.

 

Thank you!

When a fan makes noise, time to not trust it.

 

I'd replace the fan........ or

Perhaps just upgrade the entire heat sink so that it'll run cooler and the fan will spin up much less often.

Well, you could do a heatsink reseat ( fyi the fan that you showed is called a heatsink and is the main source of cooling for your cpu) or try to see if the BIOS fan setting is configured for performance

Okay guys real novice here. Figured replacement would be in a response. From what I can see the entire fan/heatsink is one big piece together. Can I just replace the fan. Can't see anywhere where it would come off alone. Secondly I scoured Asus G10ac including the manual. It does not tell me what this one is. Size/model no/ etc.   Your replies are SO MUCH appreciated!!!!

If you're a real novice, then i suggest taking it to a local computer repair shop....

And the thing is you can replace just the fan....

Only if you have the correct heatsink model.

Well novice, but not afraid to get in there with your help. I would like to order the fan/sink combo but just no clue where to find out what to order. Scoured the internet for an hour last night with no luck. I did find a sticker on the side of the fan  1307 1-002201 DP 01342     which yielded no results.

To remove the fan from that heat sink, you'll probably remove the heatsink from the motherboard to do so. 

 

One issue with your heat sink is that it does not use the back plate. Which means you'd have to remove the motherboard from the case and install the back plate and heat sink clips and screws to support a larger heatsink. Which kind of sucks.

BUT

The heat sink you look to replace the current one with is called the Wraith Spire.

This way you won't have to remove the motherboard.

The triangular screws at the base of the heat sink, there's four of them. They turn counter clockwise like a screw. About a half turn and it will release from the mothebroard. Installation is just the opposite. Super easy. Difficulty level at a 2 of 10.

Just be sure to get some thermal paste.

Is there a specific size that I would need to get? Thanks so much for your detailed answer!

Well, I will certainly help you as much as i can. Instead of searching for the fan num, search for a heatsink for your particular cpu manufacturer. What pc do you have and can you send a snap of your specs( Press windows key+r, the run tab will open and search for dxdiag, it will ask for checking drivers digitally and click ok, then you will get you spec sheet)

Hello. I had advised him to upgrade from the wraith stealth tho the larger but similar Wraith Spire heat sink and fan. 

Do you think this is a good suggestion??

Well, I am pretty sure that it will work. The cpu cooler mount changes only with the chipset, in your case you're fine.

Warning: do this at your own risk as damaginf the cpu or the cooler can compromise your pc
