Cooler Master V6 GT Running Extremely Loud

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I need some help. My rig is about a year and a half old and I realized about a month ago that my Cooler Master V6 GT is running extremely loud. I'm pretty sure it didn't used to be this loud. I was wondering if someone can give some suggestions on what it could be. I was thinking maybe a break down of thermal paste, because of the extreme heat of gaming everyday. It just doesn't seem old enough to me for that to be the issue. And I really don't want to have to rip my entire machine apart. I built it, so I will if I have to, but it's such a pain. Any thoughts?

are your temps the same or lower ? sounds like the rpm has been increased .

Your thermal paste wouldnt be causing it to run loud. Have you changed any settings in your bios like cool n quiet? if so that will change your cpu fan speeds.

You could possibly have some dust stuck in the cooler causing some noise or just dust build up causing more air drag making a louder noise when the air is blowing through it.

Try looking at your fans rpms see if they have gotten higher than they use to be maybe mess with the speed see if its a fan failing too

When was the last time you cleaned your system?
Dust and fuzz often plug fins on coolers meaning they don't cool as well and run hotter so fan speed increases to keep temps down.
