I've had the computer since 7/21 and it was completely silent even when running WoW on high for multiple hours. and now I am noticing the fan being noticeably louder. I have no idea if this is just like the fan is collecting dust or something else.

It is still pretty quite but I am just cautious since this is one expensive computer and I don't want to mess it up lol.

I was wondering if there are any guides/how to's on cleaning the fans? Thankyou!

Well it might be that ambient temperature is higher now, which means your core temps would be higher as well, so fans compensate.
As for the fan cleaning for me the best way is to use compressed air, you can buy cans of compressed air for like few euros.
Just before you use compressed air remember to shut down laptop completely, and always keep the can vertical.

Alright thankyou, and the ambient temp was probably it.
