cpu fan noise

hello there:)... i've just bought my pc 45 days ago no longer..it was running smooth and everything was fine till since like 9 days a weird sound started poping out of my case..i cleaned it and all 3 fans inside but still didnt help..yesterday been noticing where sound exactly comes from and turned out to be from the cpu fan..removed it cleaned fully and replaced again..it started off quite as it is used to be but within 20mins again it started going crazy though not as be4 but yet more or less like a junk motor..i simply got no idea why as cpu usage always at 8-15% hardly is up to 25% and temp looks fair enough...other posts with same prob always got a common prob which is fan is old and need to be replaced but i dont think a 45 days fan is an old one...any ideas? hope my explanation is clear enough

thanks :)

Welcome to WebmasterWorld Demonic lust.

Are the fan's bearings properly lubricated?

Bad fan motor... Did you get a warranty?

If so, take the computer back and ask for a new fan.

If not, then buy a new fan as soon as possible, and do not leave the machine powered on when you are not sitting right there. If that fan stops, your CPU may be completely destroyed in seconds. New fan: ~ $7.00. New CPU: ~ $350.00. And that's assuming that no other damage is done...

A broken CPU fan once fried my Pentium 4 processor. Better safe than sorry, I would replace it as soon as possible.
