CPU fan buzzing

I have the AMD FX6300 stock heatsink and cooler (for now) and recently its started to make a weird buzzing noise. It gets more high pitched/frequent as the fan speeds up. It sounds as if its grating something but ive checked for any loose wires touching the fan and nothing is anywhere near it and it doesnt seem clamped toon tight to the heatsink either. Its a relatively new build, only about a month old so i cant see the bearings failing so soon. Any ideas? And if so, could it prove fatal?
thanks in advance

    Sometimes things are bad when you buy them. It doesn't happen often, but it does happen. Just replace it. CPU coolers are cheap. Much cheaper than CPU's.
