ASUS ROG Zephyrus S15 GX502LXS Fan suddenly super noisy

I've had the laptop for under 11 months. I am used to the noise of the fan spinning up and being loud, but this is a new noise. It sounds like the fan is having serious issues, and it's only coming from the right fan. I've tried blowing it out with compressed air, messing with the Armory Crate settings, and turning it off and back on. It doesn't always do it but anytime the fan spins up to compensate for CPU usage, it starts. It'll do it the entire time I'm playing a game, which makes me super concerned I'm going to break my only computer.

Is this a known issue? Is there a fix?

Kinda sounds like the fan bearing is dying. Since you are still within 1 year I would setup an RMA and get it replaced while you can.
A bus station is where a bus stops. A train station is where a train stops. On my desk, I have a work station…

Be very careful when using compressed air as too much pressure will spin the fan over it's bearings rated speed limit and ruin them in a second.

Did you finally find out where the noise is coming from? Exactly the same thing happens on my laptop
