SOURCE: Fan Noise on Dell Dimension 8100
All computer fans have a general design. The name in front of "fan" really refers to the designation. You'll see case fan, processor fan, CPU fan, cooling fan, etc. In the case of CPU/Processor fan, some are sold with heatsinks (the metal block sitting on top of your CPU).
The first thing you want to do is make sure the fan is clean. Chances are dust buildup is causing the excess noise.
If that's not the case and you're looking to replace the fan, then you first need to find out the size of the fan. General sizes(diameter X width in mm) are listed on this page:
Generally, you're looking for something that will match the size of what you're replacing & push enough air at a reasonable noise level to cool the heatsink/CPU. You want to stay in the area of 30dBA max for noise. You also want to see if it has a 3-pin or 4-pin connection.
For example, if you have an 80mm fan, I would suggest something like this:
It's pretty quiet with good airflow. Also, it has a 3-pin connection, but includes an adapter for a 4-pin connection.

Hi the prob is not with the fan all you need to do is take the cover where the fan is and clean it with a paint brush so all the dust is gone.

A bearing more than likely has went bad causing your fan to stop properly cooling your unit. Replace with a compatible fan and you should be all set. Hope this helps.
