Default Fans Really Loud

The other day I noticed my fans were getting really loud, not just during bootup or games but continuously loud all the time. This has never happened before. I opened my case and they seem to not be blocked and spinning fine. Should I buy new fans or what can I do.

well i am guessing you are american. given you are in the northern hemisphere and seasons are reversed from what i have i would also guess that it is summer . naturally fans will be louder in summer. but if you think it is a serious problem and your temperatures seem abnormally high you probably should go ahead and replace them.

Good habit to have. You probably are noticing the increase in the noise your fans make because you may have some extra loads on your machine than usual. As long as you keep your machine clean and your not getting any heating problems you can a) purchase some newer fans or b) they make this soundproof material they use in car stereo systems that you can also cover the inside of your case in.
