Hi I got my pc upgraded a while ago I noticed that when on the game minecraft after a while minecraft makes my pc fans go really fast and all the vibration is Annoying. is this normal? I heard it can be bit Strong on the CPU because it generating a lot of random land in the game when looking around on it. but on all my other games there fine =S

My specs are

GTX560 (not ti)
AMD Atholon x4
8gig
64 bit

I had the upgrades done to the GPU and had another 4 gig added and a bigger power supply.
before I had the GTX 220 or something or GT 220. I also only had 4 gig

any help would be great as I need to use this game to make a ingame film

Thanks for any help

So -
while minecraft makes my pc fans go really fast
The temp is 70C

The fan would seem to be doing its job.

If the fan is noisy it could be due to a dry or worn bearing.

It should be OK - until it starts running hot ( if it does ) then it will shut down.

If the bearing is going - it will eventually stop functioning.

Keep an eye on the temps - especially under load.
