PC is getting very loud recently when playing games

Hey guys,
So recently my fans have been really really loud and spinning like crazy when playing games. It doesnt appear to be that hot and i have cleaned it with compressed air several times. I have also opened the side of the case (it sits on my desk) and have a small fan next to it airing it out yet it is still loud. I have limited computer knowledge but enough to get by, so i was wondering if anyone had any advice. I do not believe my fan is loose or anything but it could be. My Specs:

Processor Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-4460 CPU @ 3.20GHz

Video Card AMD Radeon R9 200 Series

Memory 8.1 GB

Operating System Microsoft Windows 8 (build 9200), 64-bit

Display Maximum Resolution 1421 x 800

Drive
Size 905.3 GB
Free 88.1 GB

Any Help is Greatly Appreciated
Thanks

Answer
you are assuming

You haven't stated anything showing you actually checked temperatures, just assuming it's OK. Boot into BIOS and go to the health area and just let it sit about 5 minutes and check it. At idle, in room of 70-80 degree ambient temp, the readings should be 30-40 Centigrade and fans remain constant. If temp shows over that, especially over 50 Centigrade, then time to replace thermal paste and clean HSF.
