I've just bought and assembled an Asus Pundit-R system.\n\nI've installed a 2.8GHz P4 (Prescott), 1 GB of RAM, a 120GB WD Caviar drive\nand a Sony DVD-RW (whose tray will not fit through the gap in the front\nbezel...).\n\nThe system works fine, but the CPU fan is driving me to distraction. The CPU\ntemp is stable at around 50 degrees, and the fan is stable at 5500RPM. It's\nincredibly noisy, similar to the noise a desk fan would make and well above\nAsus' website's claim of "27dBA in idle mode".\n\nI've tried everything I can in the Bios - I've enabled/disabled Q-fan, I've\ntried increasing the fan temperature thresholds. I've updated the Bios\n(though I think the Bios I downloaded is the same as what was there\noriginally, anyway).\n\nHas anyone got any suggestions for what I might be missing? Or can anyone\nrecommend a replacement CPU fan (UK sourced)?
