Weird noise coming from 92mm fan on Arctic Cooling Freezer 13 PRO ... *sigh*

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Don't know what is up with me and problems today, but I've had some VERY annoying noises come from my heatsinks 2nd fan, the small 92mm that blows air across the VRMs and such near the chip. I've never had this before, and It was driving me insane and I finally found it. I forgot I even had that fan in there, I mean is the fan spinning out or something cause I blew quite a bit of compressed air into that area and it didn't do a thing. I then just put my finger in and stopped the fan and let it spin up again and it TEMPORARILY fixes the problem. -.- It's extremely noisy when this happen too and I can't unplug the fan Cause of course both of the fans are on a single cable *sigh* so anyone have this problem or have a ... (starts making the noise in the background again) ... fix for this problem or anything ... xD

I 've had that noise a few months now, and only today I realized my arctic freezer had a small 50mm fan (not 92 as you point), which generated this noise you re talking about. The noise is generated because the motor does not mount perfectly (after the 1,5 year of use and the temperature distortions it has sucumbed to) on the bracket. So it spins faulty.
Today I tried using some oily stuff to reduce the friction of the motor, but the noise comes back sometimes (lighter this time). Still I'll have to try it a few days more to be sure
But I thing that either I have to find a replacement for the fan (I can't find anything at the moment) or disable the small 50mm fan, and use only the larger 120mm fan.

More than likely the bearings are dry and/or wearing out

Yeah must be. xD Would oiling it actually help? and if it would any recommendations.

Yes my mistake, I read somewhere and something about it said it was 92mm it was probably talking about the lower end version of the heatsink where it's bigger fan is a 92mm. Anyways, It seems to disappear if I don't have the system running for a couple hours, and it's strange cause I've actually had this heatsink for around exactly 1.5 years.

Some fans can be opened up and oiled. No idea if yours is one of them. Sorry.

Same issue here. Intermittent. Can be silent for a few days and them bam. I can generally stop it by shutting down and rebooting. Never know when it will start back up. I think the only solution is to replace the cooler. May try a similar Arctic Cooler unit to see if I can use the same mounting hardware. and not have to remove the mobo. Glad I saw this as it confirms my thought as to what is going on.
