p7-1126s - Fan issue

[ Edited ]

Running an p7-1126s - 24/7 for 2-1/2 years.  Runs well.  Not a lot of gaming   Sometimes Photoshop.


I ran Speed Fan.  It detects 3 fans, but only 2 are running.

One is at 0 rpm

Is this a problem?


Do I need to have this fixed at staples?

How many fans in this model?


It is making a noise like a fan is speeding up, and there is a clunky fan, but first I want to know if one of my fans is dead - without having to open the box.

Re: p7-1126s - Fan issue

Typically there are 2 fans, 1 rear case fan, and 1 CPU/heatsink fan. The internal PSU fan is not regulated by the motherboard. It's about time you opened the case with the power disconnected, and cleaned out all the dust. It will amass around any intake source. Be sure to remove the front cover.
