    My experience is that when the fan goes, you start getting errors long before it does any damage to the mother board. Of course, if you ignore those errors, you will eventually damage the mother board. You can do the same thing by never cleaning the fan filters. However, good fans are much better than they use to be. It has probably been 10 years since I had a fan fail.

    That's quite true, with good fans, you *generally* don't have a problem.

    Basically, if you don't know or trust, or know someone who knows and trusts your system builder/manufacturer, don't leave it on... the problems fore-described took less than 3 hours to come about, processors now are faster and hotter, if your fan fails, you'll [img]/w3timages/icons/aflame.gif[/img].

    Do you use Norton Auntie Virus?

    If so, make sure that you have the latest software updates and virus definitions.

    Are you sure that's the fan? If I heard funny noises when I booted, I'd suspect the drive was going bad.
