Power Supply Fan Noise :(

All of a sudden, starting 3 days ago, the fan of my power supply has been making strage noises. The noise sounds like a grinding and it starts every so often and stops in like 5-10 seconds. The psu is by some no name company and its 400w. Any one know why its happening? Should I be worried? Think it can roast all my parts?

Thanks a lot for the help

Sounds like your fan's going bad. You should be able to replace it with any 80x80x25mm fan. Just clip off the wires for the existing fan and solder them onto the wires for the new one.
