[SOLVED] Weird fan noise on PC startup

That is okay. When you fire up a PC, it is on max load initially due to initialization of various programs and services, before it settles down and becomes stable. A good quality cooler usually doesn't let you realize that due to its efficiency, but then again Intel stock coolers are not really known for their quality.
 
New Pc ( about 3 weeks old). I noticed that whenever I boot up my PC there would be this weird fan noise for up to a minute or something, then it disappears. Was wondering if it's anything serious?
I couldn't decide for sure but I suspect it's coming from my stock Intel CPU cooler.

You can hear the noise in the file below:

Sounds like a fan running at full speed. Check speed curve in BIOS or any SW that regulates it.

Hellfires answer is correct ... fans go fast for a few seconds at boot up , the time to worry is when they stay fast.

Whilst on the subject of fans , ......

Dont know how long you have been into pc's but when users think they have a problem they take the side panel off and the next comment they make is ..... my gpu fans are not running , so if this applies to you and you just happen to notice they are not working , keep the side panel off and load up a demanding game , tab out so you can place task manager over the top of the game , open performance and look at gpu temps , most gpu fans are not designed to kick in till about 72 degrees but you may see them run a few seconds if you have side off at boot up

Thank you for your answer. I can see my GPU fans through the glass wall and I know they shouldn't be running all the time :). My GPU fans start working much before the GPU hits 72 degrees though. They start at about 60 degrees.
