    If cleaning hasn't solved the problem and the blades are not brushing against anything, see if the fan is firmly attached. If it's screwed on, check the screws. If it's still not that, peel off the sticker and apply a small gob of grease on the bearing or bushing.

    If that does not cure it, it's time to replace the fan. Even if you can live with the noise, it's probably nearing the end of its useful life.

    Some noisy fans can keep on working for a long time, but since it's a P-3, it's probably quite a few years old. And it may stop or slow down too much to give adequate cooling without your noticing it, and your processor will be fried. Fans are much cheaper to replace.

    off to "never ever" land
    dude
    a new fan costs like 50 bucks or so
    ur fan motor is probably damaged and will give in anytime ...
    U CANNOT FIX IT IF THATS THE CASE !

    most of these guys know what they are talkin abt ...
    listen !!
    its better than having a bust fan and then not being able to use ur pc for a few days
    or even worse ur pc overheating bcuz ur fan isnt workin poperly !

    since u mentioned its a p3 .. im sure its the kind that doesnt even use a molex connector ?
    u can try it on a friends pc or something .. to check if thats the problem ..
    or it COULD be that ur 2 wires are giving in excess of 5 volts to the fan which is makin it run faster than its supposed to hence causin unnecessary vibration and consequently noise !
    if u are a technical person use a multimeter to check the voltage between the 2 terminals

    Molex is the name of a company that makes different types of connectors, but the connector that is most commonly associated with the name Molex in a computer is the 4-pin power supply connector that carries +5 and +12V supply. Red wire for +5V, yellow for +12V and two black wires for ground/negative.

    P.S. : Another example of a connector that bears the name of a company is the RCA plug. RCA was one of the giant pioneer companies in electronics and was originally called Radio Corporation of America, but they became universally known by the abbreviation, so they officially changed the name to RCA Corporation in 1968. Now it's a part of the Harris Semiconductor group of companies.

    Might be a setting in the BIOS also. My MoBo have a Q-Fan control in the BIOS and based on this setting too, the fans sound can be controlled to an extent. But I doubt if P-3 boards had this setting. i say better to get a new fan, then risking the processor getting busted.
