Possibly the fan that is on the way out does not have to work (spin) so fast. More air = less heat....to a degree.

thanks for replying Doofus.
the thing is, the DVD rom doesn't work the right way. like, i have to push a pin in that small hole and then it ejects the box. and before installing this new fan when i used to start up my computer,say after 8 or 9 hours there used to be this grinding sound from the cpu (in my guessing it was from the DVD rom, cause its spoilt) that sound is less now. what would a new fan have to do with lessening that sound? (or was it never the sound from the DVD ROM?)

Fans possibly don't have anything to do with it. It's probably a warning to track it down & replace it. One day it might go POOF!

You need to locate the source of the noise. It could be a fan going bad. It could be your CPU fan and with the additional fan the CPU is running cooler and its fan does not have to spin as fast. Just a guess, but I would try and locate the source of the noise.
