Thank you, the reason I asked for specifics is to try, and track down any problems with your particular model. It would be helpful if you provided the model number, and also if it is a laptop or desk model.
I can only assume it is a desktop model because you mentioned you keep it on the floor.

I did find one about a laptop from three years ago: Zoostorm Freedom Fan problems - Tech Support Forum

And this, on a desktop: Amazon.co.uk: Customer Reviews: Zoostorm Pentium Dual Core E6300 2.8ghz Windows 7 Home Premium PC, 500GB HDD, 2GB Ram, DVDRW, 7871-0032

Their web site seems to be unavailable.

Okay, now you need to go to Zoostorm Computers to track down your model, and see if you can come up with any comparisons to the speeds you see in your speedfan report.
That is the link, but because of the holidays they are doing maintenance, and on vacation.

Your speeds, and temps do not look out of the ordinary, the fan speeds if anything may be a little low. You would just have to keep an eye on them, and create a baseline report.
Too bad you did not have any readings before the spawning.

If the fan noise continues to bother you you can replace it with a new one. That is up to you. A new one goes between $30 all the way up to $70 USD.

By the way, how is it doing? Still getting better, holding its own or getting worse?

Oh, so if anything, the fans broken, not the Hard Drive, PSU etc.

It's no longer loud but still can hear it.

Can feel a little air coming through the fan holes too.

That is a possibility.

But, to my knowledge you still have not done any physical troubleshooting to rule out the the other fans.

It would be foolish to spend money on a fan for one, when it "might" turn out to be something entirely different.

To answer your specific concerns:
If it was the HDD, your machine would not boot up at all.
If it was the PSU you would have probably seen smoke, maybe sparks/fire, and smelled a very, very hot electrical circuit board smell.

Here's a better overview:



SpeedFan flagged after running a MBAM Scan manually 10 minutes ago, maybe it was because I accidentally forgot to untick the Junk from installing, 2 seconds later realised, canceled, went back, unselected and then installed.

Maybe it is just me, but it is difficult to follow what you did here.

From your description it sounds like you had speedfan installed, and it was running okay.

Then ran a MBAM scan that flagged speedfan.

So you cancelled the MBAM scan, and re-installed speedfan without the "junk", and speedfan went back to running okay even with a MBAM scan.

"So", I wanted to verify if "speedfan was running okay now"
Am I anywhere close?


How is that fan holding out?
