Ok, i have a little issue. I had weird fan sounds from the computer and i thought it was my cpu's fan making that horrbile sound because it goes up to 6200 rpm on a 42c its not that overloaded and the high rpm scare me and confuse me i dont know why it is like that. so i thought that i should replace the cpu fan and get a new one but to my amaze after opening my computer apart i found out that there is a little fan connected to the mobo directly that is making that freaking loud sound upon every restart. THE thing is i dont know why my cpu has such high rpm and would it be safe to run the mobo with no fan? IM running a biostar NF4 amd. my computers is now apart and im running on my other computer for the moment. im afraid to run my main computer with no mobo fan connected. thanks in advance

Ya get a passive ( Fanless) heatsink, no parts to fail. Also do not use the mobo w/o a heatsink it will burn out.

Yes you will still have a problem if you run your board w/o the fan or a heatsink on it. With out something on it to dissipate the heat your chip will burn out. About the only major chip you can run w/o a heatsink is the south bridge on an intel mobo.
