    I got my lovely Quad Core last year and it's always been as quiet as a mouse - I've finished games like Mass Effect and Bioshock without ever hearing it. Just recently though, when playing Fallout 3 and L4D its decided to do an Xbox 360 impression and double up as a hoover impressionist. Guess its either dying aleady or it's time to buy some compressed air and clean the fucker.

    It'll just need a good clean out to get rid of the dust. I usually do mine every 3/4 months or so. Done it earlier today actually, dropped the temp by 2-3 degrees accross all the cores. I'm too cheap to buy compressed air though, had to make do with the power of my lungs.

    Clean the dust from the fans inside.

    And if you are too cheap to buy compressed air use this:

    And don't even try to ask me how they call it in english :) but it should be available in drug stores

    Definately dead or dying, email me and il come round to dispose of it for you. That loud fan thing is always a sign of impending doom. If you keep using it, it might catch fire.
