When the controls call for the fan to run at high speed, the blower on my car is definitely louder than when the car was new.

When mine slows down just a bit, it takes on sort of a buzzing sound...one person described by saying it sounded like a swarm of bees.

last night on my way down south, bout an 45min drive, i had my a/c on like normal, but bout 20mins in the ride i noticed it got really hot and no air was blowing out... well when i got to where i was goin, i popped the hood and notice that my A/C line was frozen. ice cold with pieces of ice fallen off. now i have added more freon pervious to lastnight, Im just wondering if that freon i put in was to much... but the gauge said it was fine... ill check when i get off work and check the name of the stuff. found the name

When your lines freeze up, it is an indication that your charge is low and you need more refridgerant.
