Proliant ML110 G4 Fans and Heat Sinks

i got into work this morning and one of my fans sound like they are ready to take off.
its making so much noise.
my first thought was just to replace it, but now im wondering if its the heat sink that is making so much racket.

does anyone know if its common for these fans to burn out and how do they usually go when they go?

Not 100% familiar with the ML110, but can you remove one of the fans per booting it up(depending on the number of fans?). maybe you can find which fan is yelling. and i think this would tell you if the heat sink is yelling, also.
