Computer cooling fan issue

I have my computer located in a non enclosed well ventilated place ...however the cooling fan seems to come on almost every 5 minutes or so when surfing the net and is getting quite disturbing and on certain sites it comes on more frequently .... any ideas why ?

It must be the Bono pics in Pleba.














Obviously, I am no help and know nothing about the problem. I'm just kind of a smartass.

The cooling fan(s) (CPU and/or system) will speed up when more CPU activity is happening. Internet, multiple windows open, games, etc = more calculations/electrical signals being made = more heat = more cooling needed. No cooling = meltdown = buy a new CPU/motherboard, etc.

Now, you may want to check for lint and dust inside the system and air it out. Also, check the CPUs' heat sink for lint between the grooves; difficult to air cool if there's stuff in the way...similar to not removing the lint from the dryer filter, your clothes don't dry well. All of this does contribute to added heat generation/retention.

Yeah, get some canned air and blow the whole thing out good. When my heatsynk gets dusty, the fans are on full stop and it's really annoying. You can also get these little widgety apps that give you temps of different parts of the computer. If it's always running hot just during your "normal" use, you can add another fan.

If your fan starts sounding like a cow mating with a dolphin, I can tell you from experience that it needs replaced.
