I have a 212 Hyper evo cpu fan and heatsink. Sometimes the fan acts as if its struggling to stay on. It cuts out for a second then speeds back up. Is this something that can be fixed or should I get a replacement for it. I've had it for about a year and its only been like this recently. --- I don't "need a life," I'm a gamer I got lots of lives.

Are you using any sort of speed controls in the BIOS?
Specifically anything that would let the fan adjust it's speed.
That would be the first thing I'd look into. --- Leader of the Elder Cult of Jiub. Wow. Kenny's a Japanese Princess..

I'd try a different power connection (either on the mobo or molex) and if you see no improvement, replace the fan. --- Leader of the Elder Cult of Jiub. Wow. Kenny's a Japanese Princess..

Yeah, I had the same issue, go into BIOS and set fans to Full speed or "normal" that fixed my Fan issue. --- If Judeo-Christian God exists, he creates and destroys indiscriminately. He loves and hates all. That's pretty badass
