It say something about "here is how to stop your computer from overheating" and some cookie cutter solution. anyways, i will post the aftermath of HP/Compaq support and customer care.
I own two V3000z's, the Turion X2 based one has the noise although it is not too loud & I only hear it if I let the processor run at full speed. On the other hand the Sempron based one is totally silent.
