Question about Dell Inspiron 531s Desktop Computer
I'm assuming your desktop has an AMD processor?
AMD have a process called "quiet and cool" this basically speeds up the fan when the processor is under load and getting hot or slows it down when the processor isn't working as hard.

A cooling fan of a computer should be running on a constant speed it should not speed up and speed down, this is a clear sign of a fan that is already getting bad and that wont be able to maintain the good cooling system of your computer, I suggest you think of having that fan replace.

Tips for a great answer:
Keeping the fans clean is especially important, because the fans blow out hot air and bring in fresh air to cool down the laptop.
Fans attract dust, however, which can slow them down, resulting in a hot laptop.
If the laptop overheats, vital parts can cease functioning altogether.
Consequently, keeping your laptop's fans clean is crucial.
The fan speed on a laptop can determine how it operates consistently and reliably.
You can slow it down or speed it up, based on the circumstances.
For instance, slowing down the fan speed may be useful in reserving processes or during a prolonged slow time.
Speeding it up is beneficial in keeping the laptop cool during ongoing use or high-traffic times. For the long term, find a happy medium for regular use, so you won't "psyche" out your computer by constantly adjusting the settings.
Click on the Start menu and select "Control Panel." Next, choose "Performance and Maintenance."
Select "Power Saver."
To slow the fan speed, locate the slider next to "CPU Processing Speed" and slide it down by moving across to the left.
To speed up the fan, move the slider to the right.
Press "Apply" and then "OK," if prompted.
Hope this helps
