    noisy computer


    whenever i play any games that are fullscreen, my computer gets really noisy then goes quiet about a minute later, then 2 minutes after that, it's noisy again.

    what could be the problem?

    It depends, noise coming from CPU fan, Harddisk or Speaker?

    Could be the fan, due to overheating or just a defective fan.
    Do you know how hot the computer gets?

    ok i used speed fan, and the current temperatures are :

    gpu: 93
    temp 1: 42
    temp2: -128
    temp3: 36
    HD0: 34
    core: 34

    all in c

    fan1:1805 RPM
    fan2: 980 RPM

    pretty certain its not hard drive or speakers, may be cpu fan, but not entirely sure
