Re: My eternal dim 8400 fan debacle noise oh noise

Hey guys,

I'll bet it's the fan on video card not system or CPU fans. Give away is your comment that fan sound increases when scrolling up/down a web page quickly.

Just opening powerpoint on my 8400 gets the video card fan whizzing. Keeps going even if I minimize powerpoint and let PC sit idle. When I close powerpoint the fan settles down.
