    CPU fan on the blink?

    Over the last week or so my CPU fan has been really noisy. It still works fine but it is too the point of really annoying. Im not sure if the bushes or bearings have gone but can anyone advice? It is the Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro and its seen about 2-3 years of fairly heavy use.

    Should i just buy a replacement (92 mm) fan, or is there anything else i can try?

    thanks guys

    If full of dust try getting a can of dry compressed air and blowing any dust out which may be obscuring airflow

    Try cleaning out any dust, however a know fault with the acf7p was the pwm function of the fan dieing, ending up with the fan stuck at 100% all the time, which may be what's happened.

    Other things it could be, CMOS reset/BIOS update could of disabled the fan pwm settings.
    Could be a bareing issue.

    Only way to track it down is testing.
