As the cpu (central prossing unit also known as processor) heats up the fan will surge to cool it down. Nothing to worry about. If this helps you rate favorable.

SOURCE: High speed fan
There is a CMOS setting that you can set on some motherboards which monitor CPU temperature while adjusting fan speed to match. You might have a look into your CMOS settings for such an animal. To enter the CMOS, tap the F1, or F2 or Delete key (depending on your motherboard) about 3-5 seconds after repowering your machine. ZT3000 "Beta tester of "0"s and "1's"

SOURCE: Loud fan noise
Some HP computers are known for video card fan noise. I had an a1250n and a m9500f with this problem. On the a1250n, they replaced the video card 4 times. HP finallt told me they know about this problem. I guess they had to keep giving inferior video cards until you got a good one. If it is under warranty get a free replacement from HP. If not, don't mess trying to fix it like putting special oil on the fan spindel which helps for a short while.

SOURCE: cpu fan of dell desktop
Either your fan is dirty or your fan is malfunctioning. If you have a warranty then call Dell to replace the fan (they will run some test first), or if you know how to replace the fan i would suggest that first.
Dell usually comes with a Diagnostic Disk that you can boot from to troubleshoot, if you do not have the disk then the built in Diagnostic Utility can help you. This will also help tell you if there is anything else wrong with the machine, the test takes long so be patient.
To get to the Diagnostics Utility follow these steps:
1. Reboot the computer and press "F12" and you will be taken to a "Boot Menu".
2. Select the Diagnostic Utility (might have a different name)
3. Walk through he steps to test your computer. This Utility will test everything that's why the disk is better. The disk will allow you to choose which test to run.
If you do not have the built in Diagnostic Utility and do not have the disk then visit the Dell website, choose support and type in your Service Tag number. Then download the utility, this site can also determine if you still have a warranty on the machine (but your GX520 is quite old and might be out of warranty)
Please rate if this helps
