So I recently built my first PC and i have it working with no problems apart from the noise from the Stock CPU fan.
I have an AMD 8350 processor (AM3+ socket)
The stock fan often goes above 5.5k rpm and it is also extremely noisy. When i am in the middle of the game I can still hear it loudly through my headphones and my friends complain of the background noise on Skype.
I wanted to know of there is a reason for this or if it is just the fact that it is a stock cooler. I am not planning to over clock, but I will still buy an after-market cooler if it will help the noise levels. If you have any suggestions about what cooler to buy I would grateful.
Thank you in advance.
