Obviously you do not want to stop your fan.

Firstly make sure that the fan is free from dust and any blockages.

Then if it is annoying you can use a fan speed control programme.

HOWEVER NOTE: you are best to have the diagnostics programme for your system running so you can check if the fan is running fast enough to keep your system cool.

Fan speed controll programmes are available.

there are various versions available some work with other brands that are not listed

Try

http://www.server-parts.com/installspeedfan427.exe
http://www.server-parts.com/i8kfangui220.exe

The first one is a generic one see disclaimer at
http://www.almico.com/speedfan.php

The second is a dell/and many others see disclaimaer at http://www.diefer.de/i8kfan/

Not every chipset has a speed control capability, but most of the newer ones do.

So I suspect that speedfan will help.

As with all freeware, if you use it and like it it is always nice to go to the relevant programmers website and give a donation if they take them.
