yes, the bearings in your fan are probally just worn out. most places, when you buy a fan, they give you the RPM's and the dB level. you want one with the most RPM's and the lowest dB(sound) level.

You should be able to tell if sound is coming from the CPU fan, or the PSU. If you can't, then it's not too loud.2
