Hello, fellow 420channers.

I, once again, came to ask for a piece of advice.

I built a PC from brand new components, but my CPU fan is too loud and it sounds a little incosistent. This is my setup (no GPU involved):

MB Gigabyte B250M-D3H, s.1151, DDR4
CPU Intel Core i5-7500 (3,4 GHz, 6MB, LGA 1151) BOX, KabyLake
RAM Kingston 2x8GB DDR4 2400MHz CL17 SR x8 (KVR24N17S8K2/16)
HDD SSD Samsung 850 EVO, 2.5", 250GB, SATA III, Basic
CORSAIR VS550, 80+, 550W
NET GIGABYTE WB867D-I, PCI-E

I use the fan, which was in the CPU package. Perhaps the fan itself is shitty and this is causing the problem. However, I collected some data, while in BIOS and I would like to know whether these are normal.

In normal mode, fan rotates at
1000 RPM (19 degrees celsius) MIN
2500 RPM (64 degrees celsius) MAX

While in BIOS, the CPU's temperature is at 49 degrees celsius. In normal mode, it means around 2000 RPM and it is very loud. When i switch to silent mode, I get about 1500 RPM, which is acceptable.

Is 49 degrees in BIOS regular temperature in the first place? Is there anything wrong with the CPU itself, or the default fan is just shitty and I ought to buy a new one?

Thanks in advance for kind answers...

Loud fans are usually due to bad wiring or a bad fan it self or a dying fan. Get it a new one. The CPU temp is well on the average side and I doubt it has anything to do with that.

49 sounds high for a new CPU. what you want is firm metal-to-metal contact between the CPU and the heat sink. the thermal paste is just to fill air bubbles.
