Annoying Fan

Hi just got an hp 500-189 a while back.  Now I have this annoying problem with a noisy fan.  It's rather loud, but at some points it does a really annoying one when it switches between a low pitch and a high pitch.  Now I don't want to void the warranty on this so I figure rather than going in and trying to fix it, I'd just identify the fan and ask HP to replace it.  Does anyone know of a way to test each fan to determine which it is?  I have a psu fan, a cpu fan, a case fan, and a gpu fan.  Any help would be appreciated.
