pharaondu14, since the fan makes a noise and is overheating, first suggestion would be to change the fan. Use this link to get to your fan. The parts are available at places like this and many others. Not cheap, but needed.

It really sounds like a bad fan to me. It isn't too uncommon.

Replacing a fan isn't normally that hard, but getting to it can be.

I wasn't in a position to find a tear down video, but if I find one, I will add it.

What kind of sound was it making?

Its hard to say, its inside the fan, lets say for example a wheel with not enough grease. Replacing it should not be that hard i guess but dont know how to find that kind of pieces. Thank you for your quick answer

Here is a teardown. It is in German, but even if you don't understand him, it is visually effective.
