    Computer fans are important in any machine, but especially in those that consistently get a workout through photo manipulation, video editing, and gaming. If your computer overheats, it can cause operating glitches and damaged components. Most computer fans connect to the motherboard with a 3-pin connector, though some can connect to other internal elements with other connectors. Airflow speeds typically range between 1,200 and 2,200 RPM – the higher that number, the more air blows through the fan. The amount of noise a fan makes becomes important when it disturbs movie-watching, music-listening, or game-playing, so those who use their computers often for multimedia should look for a quiet fan. Computer fans in intensely active machines need to be durable as they’ll be working a lot.
