Default Fan noise

My MacPro had been getting much noisier lately, fan noise, even just turned on & not processing. When mixing it was like someone vacuuming! Trouble was huge layer of dust covering heatsink on graphics card, easy to vacuum off without even removing card. Quiet as a mouse, only hear the 192's now!
