Motherboard Fans

Recommended Posts

I noticed that a lot of the newer motherboards have active cooling on the chipsets/northbridges, etc... I was wondering if any of these cooling systems add anything substantial to the overall noise of the system? I'm looking at motherboards and there are tons of options out there....all that seem to be virtually equivalent in performance. So I figure if some are louder than others, that might be a big deciding factor for me. Any idea for which boards are loud and which ones are not or are passive?

I think you have figured right in the new mobos. Since the new chips are suppose to cooperate with MT (multithreading) and HT (Hyper threading) technology then no longer relies on tradiotional metal cooler, I think I have written a tuorial for that in e-learning section. http://chautari.wnso.org/forums/index.php?showtopic=5591. If we kindly go through that, We may get some information in our amazement.

 

I think We don't get such louder mobo, But virtually there is a hidden fact that will be seen after few months you bought the new mobo. That has to deal with ball bearing inside the fan of the coolers. Basically there are 2 types--> (1)metal and (2) plastic, Make sure you check with the vendor what is fan balls composed of? If that is metal one , you think that it's gona last longer and give noticable performence. Hope this helps some

I have had such a horrible noise coming in my computer once.Later I found fan dead. I did not know how technically it works.People repairing my computer said I fried my chip. It was horrible experience.

PCs dont do well with heat. When ur fan died, tiny chips in the motherboard quit functioning because of excessive heat. You should have heat warning activated at ur BioS.
