Thread: Fan Working? + Ocing

  1. #1
    i opened up my pc to install a new hard drive which i did okay. but i noticed some dust on my fan. i think the fan hasnt been working but am nt rly sure. is dust on the fan blades normal for a working fan placed write about myu amd 2000 xp running at 1.66? and do you think i should consider overclocking.

    the reason i havent as of yet is i war afriad my pc would overheat.

    does overclocking incress heat by much?


    thnx

    Yes, dust on the fan blades is normal. I have always used a vacum hose thing to suck it out...i duno if thats good for it or not?? lol...but it did the job on my old one. Im sure your fan is working fine.

    Clean off the dust and check to make sure the fan is working.

    I would also like to say that if you don't want to have to clean your fan often then don't overclock.

    what does ocing have to do with the amount of dust on the fan?

    dude, go ahead and oc. but don't go too far in the first try. small increments, then check ur temps under load and idle. then continue if u want to
