  1. Hey All

    I bought 2 gateway comps almost a year ago and Ive noticed that one my brothers computer when he starts gaming and its starts heating up his front 3.5'' fan starts up but on my computer it doesnt. So here is my question how to get my fron fan either a) working all the time or B) When im Gaming etc

    What computer do you have; are the computers the same, and why do you feel that your front fan needs to speed up while you're gaming?

    If they are in fact identical computers then it might come down to placement if one is in a corner or under a desk where as the other one has proper ventilation all around it, or it might not be plugged in correctly hard to say but unless you can see any drop in gaming performance then you shouldn't worry about it.
