    CPU fans probably always running. However is the fan makes more noise than it did in the past, guess you need to replace the fan.

    Noisy fans are slower as it is usually indicates a lack of lubrication or bearing going bad. Or it could be a case you just have a whole bunch of dirt built up on it. In that case the dirt can be blown with with a can of compressed air available at any PC store. I clean the dust and dirt out of my PC 2-3 times a year

    Cheers
