Make sure you clean the fans/heatsink (with compressed air in a can for example). If they are plugged up with dust the computer will run the fans at higher speeds to try and keep the system cooler so you'll hear them more.

Thank you for the information.
Yes, the fan sound will be heard when the fan is running and it is normal.
I hope that answers your question.

Loud computer fans are overloaded fans, which could impact the overall performance of your PC. Of course, your fans aren't the only source of noise coming from your PC. Other computer whirring noises are likely to be caused by components such as your hard drive, especially if your drive has failed.
