Yes I've heard of speeds fan. A good fan is one that can be controlled by the system to work in slow, middle or fast mode whenever is needed!

Kurdman, if the laptop is under warranty then you should have gone to Dell store, since you did not go to the Dell store i am assuming that the laptop is out of warranty. Also Dell laptops with minimum configuration (15.6'', 500GB, 4GB, i3-4030U, Win8.1, Non-Touch Screen) will cost somewhere around USD-399.99, and this is good enough for normal home and business purpose.
Still if you plan to take the laptop out, then you should get it back within 3 days and it may cost between USD-70 to USD-200.
Or you check directly with Dell if they can provide you with Extended warranty, that will be good.
However, irrespective of what you decide to do, make sure that you backup the data
Mate, it's out of warranty and there isn't any Dell service store near my locale. So whatever I should do is by myself.

My recommendation is if you do decide to open your laptop, download the service manual, get some precision screwdrivers, find a youtube video of your laptop being cleaned and be careful. Laptop screws are small and putting too much pressure or using the wrong screwdriver might damage the screw and make it unscrewable .. .. thats the thing to avoid .. also get a paper and pencil and somewhere to keep the screws.. counts the screws while unscrewing, and know where you took em out from. Good luck man, if i were you id just get a cooling pad.
Thanks man. Great guidance and good instructions!
