It does appear to be the fan, but i'm not an expert on these systems. Can you confirm from the error and possibly let me know where I can order the fan from?

Yes and you are getting voltage spikes. Are you on a battery backup system with surge protection? If not you should remedy that immediately.

As far as the fan is concerned, pull it out and take it with you to Fry's.

Side note: if that box is under warranty I would take advantage of that first.

Looks like you have a bad cpu fan and a failing cmos battery.
