Could also be your bearings going out. If its not dust you may need to replace the fan also.

Yes!

I needs to replace my CPU fan in my desktop as well.  The thing is to loud, and I don't trust it, which is why I never leave it running if I am not in the office.

I took the side panel of my CPU off and have a small box fan blowing into it while it is on.  Damn thing kept overheating and shutting off while I was using it.  Box fan air cool works pretty well for a low tech fix it.

I'm pretty the fan needs to be replaced in general since the comp is old!, but still waiting to get the dust remover. What are the bearings?

lots of ball bearing fans work just like bearings in a wheel does. They get dry and start to get worn on a part, so that when it hits just right the fan will start to make noise, and then it will go back to normal again. Again once it gets to this point just buy a new fan.

just got done cleaning out the fan with a duster.. seems a little quieter now, but maybe it will sound louder within a few mins .. I was just wondering.. the power supply wouldn't have anything to do with the noise..would it?

Well I didn't open up the power supply area.. Just used the dust off spray to clean the fan and also used it to blow out anything dust that may be inside the power supply then
