Water cooled PC very noisy

Water Cooling | Overclockers Forums - www.overclockers.com
I have a water cooled PC it's about 5 years old. It's a desktop Medion MD8424 Intel Core i7 3930K, Windows 7, 16gb ram, Nvidia GeForce GTX 680, Cougar psu 750w (installed a new psu that was 600w) ssd hd and seagate 2tb hdd. Last night the CPU was running at 65c and the water cooler fan came on really loud. I have medion erazer centre which gives cpu temps and fan speeds. The cpu went as high as 79 degrees so i turned the machine off. Cleaned all fans this morning still making loud noise!! Could it be the water cooler and how do i replace it? it has a bllack radiator with two pipes, one is warm the other cooler, which are attached to a round fan above the cpu. This is bolted to the board with four screws and worried if i remove the fan it could damage the cpu, my friend did this to his pc, tried to remove the water cooler and damaged his processor pins. I virus checked my pc, it runs and boots up, ran malaware bytes too.

Could it be the water cooler, also there is a draught coming out the pc from the water cooler radiator, a friend said it should be blowing into the case? ! it's always been blowing outwards since i bought it!! THe water cooler has made a ticking noise like a hhd but it's not from the hhd, so could be that?
