It's a laptop, there are only two fans on this and only one of them made the noise. It was very loud, I once told someone I could not hear them over the sound of my laptop fan. I was not being facetious.I seriously doubt that fan will actually hit 7300 or even 7900rpm. More than likely there's another gpu reporting software or some such running and some things are getting out of whack.
Ok. There is something massively wrong here. Putting a piece of tape or glue on a wire doesn't change anything. Basic electronics. Either the wire conducts or they doesn't. If it doesn't then that means there is an "open" or break in the wire. Pressure placed on a wire or set of wires from tape or from glue points more toward a cheap wire with an "open" or break in the flow of current.Apparently you failed to even read the thread, or you'd know that they already solved the problem which was due to the connector not remaining fully seated and that applying a small amount of tape to secure the connector firmly in the socket resolved the issue.

Now I have been battling this same issue for a year on and off. Bought this expensive ASUS GL504GS. Fan started running really loud and fast about 3 months in. BTW no monitoring software has ever registered the RPMs. The bloatware ASUS Gaming Center doesn't show RPMs. The Bios does show RPMS but only shows the same speed all of the time. Around 898 RPMS. I know that is BS.
Now, I took it to the local ASUS repair shop. Luckily I live in Vietnam and the repairs are cheap. The first time back in April it was under warranty and they claimed to have replaced it. Worked find for a few months.
Acted up again in Sept, Oct, and well every month since.
In September when I took it to the shop they claimed to have updated the drivers and it worked fine for about 2 weeks. 3rd time fan was going crazy I took it to the shop and they claimed to have never found an issue. However I did check my browser history in the ADMIN profile and it looks like they enjoyed watching Vietnamese music videos on YouTube for about 8 hours the last 2 times I left it with them. That's nice. LOL.
So if its to be its up to me. I repaired micro electronics on F-14s and F-18s in the Navy, I surely can open up a consumer electronics device and get to the bottom of this issue....right?! maybe.
Opened it up. Both fans were filthy. Disconnected. Took apart. Cleaned thoroughly. Closed it up. Worked perfectly and quietly for 2 weeks. Noisy fan returned.
Minimized every type of bloatware, killed windows defender, pretty much anything the took up resources and got it running on bare bones. Fan problem remained.
Took apart. Analyzed GPU and CPU. Notice thermal paste was a little dry and might not have been making perfect contact. Did a deep clean. Removed all thermal paste. Reapplied new thermal paste. Noticed that some components were NOT making contact with heat sink and thermal paste. This might be a design flaw. Basically the entire fan/heat-sink unit was slightly bowed which caused it not to make perfect contact with the CPU. Jerry-rigged some foam and electrical tape in the right places to create a buffer that applies more pressure to the heat-sink when the cover is placed back on top thereby applying pressure to the GPU and making perfect contact. Worked perfectly for 2 weeks.
Fan noise came back. Open it back up. Just disconnected the fan wire and reconnected.
Worked perfectly for 2 weeks.
Fan noise back.
I've tried changing OS. Remove WIN10. Reinstalled. Removed all bloatware. Dual booth Linux Ubuntu Studios. No change. OS isn't the problem here.
You might be on to something with the that stupid wire...shoot.
Help anyone? Ideas?
