Recently, the CPU fan started running at full speed. What is wrong?
The CPU/Video fan runs slow at startup, and gets ridiculously fast and loud after a few minutes.
I disassembled the computer to remove 3~4 years of dust on the heat pipe fins, but the problem remains.
It is the nVidia logic board GPU that is running at 160 deg F. It has the CPU/GPU fan running at a full 3600 RPM. Is this in spec or am I going to need to try to re-seat the heat pipes to get a better thermal connection?
Is this a good question?
