Lately my AC freezer 64 pro has been loud at max RPM. It's more of a low tone sound, which sounds like loud humming and it's pretty annoying.

When I booted my comp today it was at 2000 RPM for like 15 min and it was quiet, but when it got to 2400 it got loud (not that loud) and annoying.

How can I fix this?

Set its RPM in the BIOS and disable Smartfan.

Smartfan will make your RPMs go up as your temps go up.

Though it also sounds like you could have a dying fan, as at 2400 RPM, my Freezer Pro is not any louder than my Tri-cools.

I would:

1) Make sure the fins are clean.
2) Manually set the RPM's
3) Replace with a quiter fan.

1. Okay will do that

2. Meaning? Smartfan is disabled

3. You can replace the AC64 fan?

SF is disabled, I had the cooler for 5 months.

2. He means use speedfan or something like that to set the RPMs.

Well if you take a look at the main window in speedfan it shows speeds of whatever fans are detected in percent. Usually the CPU fan speed in speedfan is at 39% which is what it is on my other computer, all you have to do is either decrease that or increase it.

I don't understand how this program works. All percentages are at 100%. Decreasing it does nothing.

Oh dang, then you have the same issue as I do with it then, maybe hook it up to a fan controller, although I don't see you can do that since the cooler has such a short connector.
