    This pc has a noisy cpu fan, I replaced it with one from a identical pc
    I had saved for parts and it is still making the same noise.
    Could it be the power going to it ?

    Thank you

    Could be the same make of fan.
    And it could be the bearings have dried out in
    both of them.
    Treat yourself to a new fan, you know you`re
    worth it <g>.
    It`ll also protect your CPU.

    Don`t know what part of the world you`re in Ed.
    But go to, and type in
    CPU cooling fans , to try to get an idea of the types
    available, (for your particular CPU obviously).

    Personally, I use a CoolMaster variable speed
    one on my AMD 3000+.
