If the fan has three wires that means that the speed of the fan is being regulated by the temperature. I'm guessing that this is a chipset fan, if there is any build up of dust you will want to blow it out with canned air. If it starts making a squeaking noise then it could be the bearing is failing, if this is the case there usually is a piece of paper covering the center of the fan, the bearing is underneath this. If you peal back the paper and add a very small amount of 3in1 oil you can prolong the inevitable.

What make and model is your motherboard?

Is it still under warranty?
