I have a ASUS N550JV that's a little over a year old.  Just today I realized that the fans were running extremely loud for no reason.  The only time they get this loud is when I am playing games.  Any advice would be helpful.  Thanks.

Extra heat from intense graphics processing and general data crunching while game playing causes your CPU and/or GPU temperatures to rise. Your fans speed up to help cool down the hot components and make more noise.

Yes, however they are running loud all the time instead of just when I'm gaming.

Get a can of compressed air and blow out the dust from the intake and exhaust vents. Be careful not to direct the full force of the air directly into the vent as you can end up causing damage to the fan -- blast the canned air on an angle.

To cool it off even more, find something to keep the laptop slightly elevated (1-2" is fine) so that more air can be taken in. I prop my HP laptop up on top of a cookie cooler rack and enjoy a temperature reduction of ~10°-15°C v. placing it directly on a table top.

Obviously don't place the laptop on a bed, couch or pillow as the air intake vents on the bottom of the laptop will be blocked and you'll suffocate the system!
