    I once had issues with my fan stopping on an old PC and it had nothing to do with the PC - just the $10.00 part was covered in dust and dirt. Amazing how we put so much faith in the smaller parts but are willing to spend a fortune on new gear.

    Best of luck UPF ........... I would consider getting a bigger fan or more powerful unit if you can fit it inside your CPU.

      If it truly is your HDD (Hard Disk Drive) fan, simply disconnect it. HDD fans are performance parts, they are not needed for normal operation of a hard drive.

      If its your processor fan, then you have a serious problem and we'll see you when its fixed.

      If its a case fan... That depends on your airflow if you can disconnect it or not.
