Well i got the x51 with the 330w PSU, it came with a 640, but that's not enough for gaming so i went and installed the 560 SC but now whenever i play a game for about 10 minutes, the fan starts to speed up ( not the videocard fan), don't know wich one yet, should i be worried or this is normal?

This is normal, all it means is that your computer is keeping your temperatures down from gaming.

Worry about it if the fan does not kick in during long sessions of GPU intensive games.

Yeah, I agree with @VagrantXeth, you should definitely not worry if you hear it spin a little more. You should definitely worry if you don't hear it spin at all lol
