I have about 2,147 suggestions but the main ones are ... is the heatsink matched to your CPU, is it fitted properly and is the PC getting ventilated properly?
Intel heatsinks automatically adjust fan RPMs (the \"loud\" bit) because ... the CPU is not getting cooled properly. Certain Intel heatsinks are loud, certain Intel heastsinks are quiet. A below-spec, loud Intel heatsink will be ... VERY loud. Even a matched-or-over-spec heatsink will be loud if it\'s being suppled warm air inside the PC case or if the heatsink itself is clogged with dirt/dust.
If the heatsink isn\'t properly fitted you\'ll have problems anyway.
If the PC isn\'t getting cool, filtered air drawn in & hot air ventilated exhausted out you\'ll have problems anyway
Pemutate these conditions and you will have the 2,147 suggestions as I mentioned above.
