View Full Version : G53SX GPU Fan whirring loudly when running fast

I've got the same problem the guy in this video seems to have. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OqyCVglDylU

Mine is only on the right side fan, which from what I understand is the GPU fan. I have tried blowing it out with canned air to no avail, and am unable to take the machine apart at the moment for a thorough cleaning.

Are there any known tricks to this sort of problem, is it common, or in all honesty what should I do? I can't afford to be without this machine for even a day as it is my livelihood.

Just off the top of my head, about the only things that make a fan run loudly are either it's spinning faster, or there's a bearing going out and someday the fan will seize up and never turn again. In the latter case, you will want to get that fan replaced ASAP.

Yeah... sadly this thing fell out of warantee literally one week ago. I can't afford to be without this machine for even a day as of now, but I am working on getting myself a new tower rig at home to fix that issue.

Any way to replace the fan myself? I can't find anywhere to order a new one, and since i'm out of warantee RMA isn't exactly an option.
