Ask the machine's maker if they used thermally controlled fans. If so, BONUS. The fans last much longer.
However it can annoy some users which we'll have to find a way to keep the fans running.
Just noticed that my power supply fan starts and stops repeatably? Will it eventual just stop and screw my pc up?
Should I go ahead and get a new power supply?
I haven't had any over heating or crashing issues with it.
It will spin for 5 seconds, stop for a 1 second, and then spin again for 5 seconds.
power suppy is 650 or 600 watts
Could a connection just be loose? I have never opened up my power suppy, but I built this pc.
