  1. yeah that's what I was asking about.
  2. yeah so does that mean I can't buy a fan and have to replace the PSU?
  3. okay so i'm a little confused now. Does the PSU also act as the fan as well or is there a fan inside that I don't know about? There's this section of the computer I didn't open because I didn't think it was necessary so I guess that holds the fan?
  4. I don't know how but when I click on "My Computer", my icons are arranged differently from the default way. I included a picture. i want to change it back to the original format but I don't know how to do it (or how i changed it in the first place).
  5. hmm but now if I don't take out that PSU, would I still be able to put in the fan? I thought I was going to replace that PSU. And if I do take it out, would the computer still work?
  6. okay so does that mean that I can't buy the fan I want to buy? Would I have to buy a PSU instead of a fan?
  7. http://www.testmy.net/forum/index.php?action=dlattach;topic=14358.0;attach=14814;image Well this is what I'm talking about. I thought that the fan is on the bottom right with all the wires.
  8. I just wanted to know about the voltage cuz I don't want to buy a fan that didn't work lol. Um i guess i'll buy the quieter one that the other guy recommended. I looked inside my computer and the fan seemed to have so many wires attached to it; is this something an average person can do or does it require someone with computer expertise?
  9. Do fans come in different voltages or are they all the same voltage?
  10. what is a fan controller?
  11. The 120 mm fan has a sound level of 49.5 dBA so that's not very loud isn't it? it's a little bit more than whispering so it shouldn't be that loud right?
  12. so 125 mm is way too much? Is it common for people to use it? I think the noise level is important to me too; exactly how loud would a 125 mm fan be like? would it be as loud as a vacuum cleaner?

    replacing fan

    Do computers need specific fans to work (like with their voltage) or can you just get any fan that is the right size? I have a Sony Vaio VGC-RC110 and i wanna replace it's fan with this http://www.frozencpu.com/fan-22.html I'm an amateur so I don't want to order it only to find out I didn't know something beforehand so any help would be greatly appreciated.
  14. I think that i'll just go with buying a fan. that should solve the problem right? the rest of these solutions seem to be a bit harder (for me). re this http://www.frozencpu.com/fan-22.html When I buy a fan, does it come with the required screws or do I have to buy them separately?
  15. how does this "Peltier Thermoelectric Cooler" work? i have never heard of it before.
  16. that sounds pretty crazy so I doubt I would do that. Plus wouldn't a lot of dust get in as well? What if I just leave one side of the case open? Or I guess my best option is to replace the weak fan with something faster, although how would I know that the fan that was posted before would fit in my computer?
  17. um you were serious about drilling in ahole lol?
  18. The fan blows up. how come the fan is only 18 dollars while the fans at newegg are like 60? that just seems too good to be true. also, how do you use the artic 5 compound? I was thinking of getting it but i'm still not sure how you use it. thanks for the input so far.
  19. oh i see. I was thinking that myself about why there wasn't a lot of space. So do I have any other options?
  20. hey guys I know i haven't responded to this thread in a while but I'm still having cooling problems. I decided to open it up and see how much space I had. I took some pics hoping that someone could tell me what kind of fan I should get and how big or small it should be. Thanks.
  21. so did you manage to see what temp and fan speed the computer your office has? just curious to see what you found.
  22. I used Everest free edition to find out. About adding fans/heatsinks, I asked the guy and he said that it won't void the warranty if you add in parts (like a harddrive or fan) but you can't tamper with the cooling system itself.
  23. I called up SONY and I told them that my computer's temperature. The guy booted up his own computer and said that his temperatures were around the same range so he said that it was normal. I also told him the speed of my fan (i looked in the bios and it said it was like 840 RPM). he said this was normal as well so i can't get it replaced.
  24. so heat pipes are actually good? Then is it my heat pipe that isn't working? Oh and about installing a heat sink or a fan...does that require a lot of pc knowledge? i'm not good at computers (obviously). oh and do you need to install both of them or just one of them?
  25. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16835100007 is this what you're talking about? How do you use this? Um I have a warranty for my Sony computer. it has onsite service so they replace any parts that are broken or not working. If I contact SONY, do you think they can fix it or will it still overheat? um last thing can you tell me more about this heatsink and what's the difference between that and a fan as well as give me some links to some good heatsinks or fans? Thanks a lot.
