Fan making buzzing noise

Pretty sure its the graphics card, though still kinda hard to tell. Kind of obnoxious when playing Wolfenstein 2, especially when alt-tabbing out of the game.

Just got back into World of Warcraft, and depending on what i'm doing and where I am in game, the buzzing noise is barely audible or quite noisy.

Graphics settings for both games aren't exactly at their highest.

Case/CPU fans seem to be ok, the noise seems to be coming from my graphics card as best as I can tell.

Any ideas as to what's causing this issue? And how to fix it?

Thanks

Depends on the fan type, I've heard that with some that you can just pry up the sticker in the center of the fan and put a drop of oil in and it'll be better.

If you sure it's the card and it's under warranty don't screw around and claim warranty.
