Hello all, 

 

I have a new gaming desktop PC and can hear the fan (CPU I assume) always humming even with CPU usage at like 5%.  Has anyone else experienced this?  Any ideas on how to reduce it?  I'm using the HP recommended power profile.  The sound is annoying and seems like it shouldn't be happening when the PC isn't under load.  If it's a hardware issue I could just return the PC.
