  1. I have a problem - my PC isn't working properly, he became too noisy and when I start to play games it begins to be even louder! What can I do with it, have you got such a problem?

    There might be a large buildup of dust on your fans, try cleaning it off with canned air.

    Could be 5 or 6 different things... ComputerHope has full, careful explanations which you might want to check out. https://www.computerhope.com/issues/ch000696.htm

    If still noisy after that, come back here and tell us more about your problem. For me, it is often a fan which needs cleaning or lubrication - but since there are 3-5 fans it can be hard to tell which - I use the eraser end of a pencil to press on the hub of moving fans to see if the noise changes.

    Do NOT open your PSU - too dangerous - high voltage!!
