Replace the cooler with newer one if your fan is a faulty.

If it doesn't help, adjust the fan speed.

Well I bought it three months ago and it's already broken? And that has no guarantee?

I didn't know how long you used your board. Sorry.
Normally, we could hear louder noise from the fan when we used over one year with very heavy intensive loads.

Do you feel the noise is much louder than 3 months ago?

Refer this thread if you use Kernel 4.9 to adjust the fan behaviour.

I'd say that the fans on my XU4 boards do pretty well considering that they're only $4. When I buy an XU4, I just add an extra fan to the purchase for the small amount. Have not had to replace one yet. You were unlucky.

Odroid xu4 noisy fan was perfect, then got noisy with bearing noise it was only 6 weeks old so contacted support team at Odroid UK, no guarantee they implied then told me to contact this forum for help. I ordered another fan, before I complained about fan problem, just after complaint made cancelled my new fan order, can odroid uk just sell faulty goods, and you cant do nothing about it

Mine is practically silent..fan works intermittently in the tropics, dare I suggest you check for dust and or obstructions to the fan or heatsink? What are your core temps? If running hot, have you disturbed the heatsink, or are you running a new distro? I'm sure there will be better suggestions, but hope you fix it ;)

It may have been a supply chain issue.
My old XU4 is quite.
The N1 supposedly had the same part and it was noisy even after tweaking the pwm so I swapped it for a big heat-sync and Noctua fan.
It may be cheaper to just buy a N2 instead of upgrading the XU4 cooling system though :)

an N-2 will out perfom the xu4 as well it is 64 bit where the xu4 is only 32bit...i love my n-2...really it should have been called a C-3 considering it`s chipset... :o
