Noisy CPU Fan 3.07gh P4 ?

Would I be correct in assuming that the noise coming from my PC with a rising and falling pitch is the CPU fan. If so would replacement fans still available for the Abit AS8-v mobo, it is one that I built years ago running XP home. Thanks.

Case fans can be picked up just about any PC store and I would imagine Ebay would be your best bet for the CPU heat-sink. I have,not so long ago anyway, thrown out a few as I cannot remember when I last fitted one. Shame as i would have quite happily sent you one. If you do have problems getting hold of a suitable fan/heat-sink let me know.

Thanks guys, I have installed a new CPU heat sink and fan and it is running fine, nice and quiet.
