My CPU stock fan is distractingly noisy can someone help?

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.

  1. cooler master evo 212
  2. what is your case ? , need to know what coolers can fit inside it
  3. Its because its the stock cooler. The FX 8350 cooler is notoriously bad, both in cooling performance and noise output.
  4. Have you set your fan profile(s) or monitored your thermal margins ?

    edit: Taken manual control of your voltages ?
  5. The Noctua NH-D14 with the low noise adapters will be so silent you will not hear it unless you put your ear within 20 cm (7.9") of the case.
  6. Thank you so much all of you guys who answered, i will look at all the CPU fans you guys recommended and probably (certainly) get one.

    That is not a best answer -- it's a wrong answer.

    Yeah, i would have to agree. Someone can deselect it as best answer if they like.

    Its not wrong though. The 8350 cooler is notoriously bad, there are multiple posts here about it.
