    You can try switching on the PC with the side of the case off to better pinpoint if it is the heatsink (not fully secured) or the fan (damaged/needs adjusting). You can push your finger against the fan while it's spinning to see what difference that makes, or just for fun.

    But replacing an AMD CPU stock cooler isn't really optional - it's necessary. Get a new slab of metal on there.
    Is that a known fact or just your opinion?I ask because i used a stock heatsink on my system for just under 2 years with out any issues.
