That would be the fan going bad with novice electrical skills you could fix it yourself.

Yes, it requires pulling your PSU apart, and physically splicing a new fan in place. You'll have to be VERY careful while inside of a PSU, as the capacitors in there can store a HUGE electrical charge, enough to give you a VERY strong shock. I would honestly recommend just replacing that PSU, as its more than likely not nearly strong enough for your build, especially being 3 years old, and not good at all to begin with.

Look at the Recommended PSU list in the PSU section (its stickied), and pick a good unit in the 550-650w range for a single card (550w for single, 650w if you ever plan to expand your build with water cooling, PhysX, or other high various uses), or 850w range for SLI in the future on your build, and you'll be good to go.

Alright thanks for the heads up man I was planning on selling this PSU earlier to fund for a new one, so I'll just have to assume it's dead now right? Wasn't planning on upgrading the PSU, then this happened. Also, would it be dangerous if continue using this PSU before I get a new one?

It's not really "dead", but the fan is dead in it. I certainly wouldn't trust your expensive machine to it for very much longer. It SHOULD work fine till a replacement comes in for you, but I would keep the load as light as possible in that time frame.
