AMD FX-8350 Fan running at 4500+ RPM

So after getting my new GPU (AMD 7870) whenever I play BF3 after about 1minute playing the CPU fan goes absolutely crazy and the speed goes up to around 4500+ RPM even though the temp is only at like 40-55. I have 2 intake fans (1 140mm and 1 120mm + 1 Outtake fan 120mm at the back). I have to turn BF off because it sounds like the CPU is about to melt, any ideas to as why it does this?

Note: I also put the CPU on my fan controller and it still makes so much noise.

are you sure its the GPU fan that is the culprit?
where are you measuring this temperature?

when you install case fans, they are most useful when you have more exhaust than intake, and create a negative pressure in the case

Sorry its the CPU fan not GPU forgot to put "CPU" in there :p  I'll switch my side fan around so I've got 2 exhausting air. I'm using HW monitor and speeds for the CPU fan get really high even though its at like 40-55 degrees. I looked at MSI afterburner and its definitely not my GPU.

Using your OEM motherboard fan utility, or AMD OverDrive will likely allow you to regulate your fan speeds by temp.
