Recently one of the fans in my computer started making noise when activated. I assume the bearing may be going out. However, the noise has stopped as of this week and a very bad burnt-something smell is wafting insidiously out of my tower. When I popped it open, all three fans were running fine and I can't locate the source of the smell except for maybe the dust.

Is it okay to vacuum out my computer tower?
Do you think this is a good solution or should I buy a new fan [presuming I can figure out which one is the problem]. Er, any advice in general?
