4.0 out of 5 stars Was disappointed but now im satisfied, 7 Jan. 2011
This review is from: HP Pavilion DV6-3112SA 15.6" Laptop (Intel Core i3-350M 2,26GHz, 3GB RAM, 320GB HDD, Bluetooth, Webcam, Windows 7 Home Prem 64-bit) (Electronics)
Length:: 1:09 Mins

27/03/2011: UPDATE: My laptop has been sent to hp for three days, heat sink and fan replaced, now its running like a proper beast. Really fast pc never had any problems after the repair.

Previous post:
I bought this laptop after my dv6 1210sa went black, and it was 11months old.
Now this i expected it to be better improved, but hp seems to fail to solve the issue with heating.
PROBLEM:The fan of laptop makes a very annoying sound, i got a replacement after reporting the issue to hp who said it was a malfunction.
the replacement came and it had the exact problem. Now question is are all these models like this?
GOOD NEWS:Perfomance wise, this laptop is a beast, candle anything you throw at it, games, editing with SPEED. The graphics are brilliant and the specs worth the price or even more.
Just that the noise from the fan is way too annoying, it heats up from just watching a youtube video or a movie.
CHECK OUT THE VIDEO FOR CLARITY.

The CPU's Fan Speed Will Change According To The CPU's Temperature, So The Hotter It Is, The Faster The Fan Spins which means more noise..

why it does that every 5 seconds or so i do not know normally it laptops would speed the fan up for a while like 2-3 minutes till the CPU cools then its silent again.
i can only imagine its cooling realy quick and goes silent, heats up again and cools again realy quick and goes silent LOL
thats just ODD

Oh! HP booked it for repair, they replaced the heat sink and the fan, and now it runs normal, quite and smooth.
Its a bit odd though i got a replacement with the same issue and sent it back to amazon, so the heat sink replacement was the best solution. I hope not all these models are like that.
