Go into Your BIOS-> find something like Hardware Monitor or similar -> change CPU fan speed to, for example, 50% set temperature limit to 50°C, save changes and reboot.
Personally I advice You to change this stock Intel cooler, for something with 120mm fan, temps will be lower and less noise around ;)


I did it... Now through the HW Monitor (From CPID) I can see the temp is between 31 and 40. Now the fan is becoming loud and then going normal... increasing and decreasing....

When Your CPU temp rise then fan speed also rise. Quite normal. Change this cooler, for some about 29$ you can get http://www.newegg.co...N82E16835233082 Gaia, quite good cooler and not expensive, set fan speed under 1000rpm, Your temps will be under 30°C in idle.
I was use this cooler with my i52500k OC to 4.4 GHz and under OCCT I've hit maximum 69°C on hottest core.

XIGMATEK is awesome. I've used them for nearly 5 years. Very impressed. :)

Is it warmer or more humid in your house than usual? Anything changed environmentally?

Moved to a new house :) But the new place is a bit colder than the earlier one!

Also buy some good thermal grease, like Zalman STG 2 or AC MX-2, this thermal compounds are best for relative small money ;)

I would also recommend a different cooler. Possibly even water cooling, if you want really quiet. You need better heat dissipation and good contact between heat sync and processor (a good cooler and good thermal paste).

If the noise is a problem, thought about an upgrade to a closed loop liquid cooler, such as a Corsair H80? etc.
