    D975XBX2 -> Fan very loud -> Lüfter sehr laut ?

    Hajooo

      Hi here in the Community.

        

      On my D975XBX2 works a Intel Core 2 6600

      RAM 4 GB

      with Windows 7 64

      ASUS EAH4350 graphics card = Passive

       

      This Computer i have in use as a HTPC to watch now and then a movie on the Internet (by the Browser) from a libary of German Television (ARD, ZDF).

       

      In the BIOS I set the fan to "slow".

       

      Unfortunately, it is so, as soon as a movie in IE (Browser) running, the fans are very loud.

       

      When you boot up, according to the Startoperation or in Office-mode, the computer is pleasantly quiet.

       

      But as soon as running a movie in the browser, the computer is loud like a propeller plane starting next to me.

       

      How can i reach that the computer stays nice and quiet?

       

      BIOS setting?

      INTEL Software Tool?

      ?

      Thank you

      Hallo hier im Forum.

       

       

      Auf meinem D975XBX2 sitzt ein Core26600

      Arbeitsspeicher 4 GB

      mit Windows 7 64.

      Grafikkarte = Passive ASUS EAH4350

       

      Diesen Rechner habe ich als HTPC im Einsatz um ab und an einen Film über das Internet etwa über Sendung verpasst oder aus einer Mediathek (ARD, ZDF) zu schauen.

       

      Im BIOS habe ich die Lüfter auf "slow" gestellt.

       

      Leider ist es so, sobald ein Film im IE läuft, die Lüfter sehr laut werden.

       

      Beim booten, nach dem Startvorgang oder im Office Betrieb, ist der Rechner angenehm leise.

      Sobald aber ein Film im Browser läuft, wird der Rechner laut, als neben mir ein Propellerflugzeug startet.

       

      Wie bleibt der Rechner schön leise ?

       

      BIOS-Einstellung ?

      INTEL-Software-Tool ?

      ?

       

      Danke

              Thanks for the information.

              As first steps I recommend you updating the BIOS to the latest one we have. Here you can download it:

              https://downloadcenter.intel.com/Detail_Desc.aspx?agr=Y&DwnldID=16896

               

              You can also try resetting the BIOS to default by accessing to the BIOS with F2 and then press F9 to reset default values.

               

              It is important to check the thermal paste in the fan is ok and the Fan itself is clean of dust since this can affect the temperature on the system and therefore the fan speed will increase to keep correct temperature.
