Ok, it does have a small 4-pin connector.

I'm not really sure if this is mines but I think it is.
It's too late to open CPU case and check now, so I'll do it tomorrow.
Thanks.
EDIT : Mindovermaster, I was referring to the fan you posted but apparently you edited your post .
So it does have a small 4 pin connector, any ideas ?

Sorry for the bump, but is it possible that a cable is loose/unconnected, causing the fan not to read the cpu temp thus, running at full speed all the time?
I had an IDE hdd but no IDE cable, so I went to a computer shop to get an IDE cable and for him to plug in the hdd for me. Is it possible he made something go loose? I believe the noise wasn't there before I went to the shop
Thanks everyone

Could be... Pop open your case and look.

There's no unconnected cables except for a small cable poping out from the power cable connected to my ide hdd.
are there any specific cables/ports I should look for?
My case is still opened and I'm talking from my bro's laptop.
Thanks

Can you get us a picture of the insides of your computer? (from a camera)

Okay here are some pics ( Sorry that's best quality I could get atm )
If you need more pics of any specific parts, please tell me and I'll take pics right away
Note : I meant to put them in links because they're large.

The hanging cable seems to be for a floppy, forget about it.......

However, it looks like your 4 pin cable is rubbing, or close to rubbing on the fan. THAT would be noisey!

Move that out of the way.

Ditto. That wire is too close to the fan.

Cable management would be a good idea too

I got it away but the noise didn't decrease. Would changing the cpu fan smart mode from auto to voltage or PWM help?
Thanks.
