Gaming PC Running very loud during short gaming sessions

Recently, since I used OC Genie to overclock my AMD FX - 8100 series to 3.00 GHZ from the stock 2.8 I've noticed that my system is running very loud in games. This is only in games and not when I deal in other programs such as rendering and 3D modeling which are probably more taxing on the CPU which thus leads me to believe the problem is elsewhere such as with the GPU (Amd Radeon R9 270 2GB) or with some settings in the bios. I have monitored the temps soon after the fans started to run very loud and noticed nothing alarming with the CPU at a mere 30 degrees and GPU at 60. Any ideas on what could be causing the loud fan speed. Also, should I disable cool n' quiet in the bios and what settings should I have for CPU Fan Target, Minimum fan speed, and SYS Fan Control 1? Thanks for the advice this forum has been very helpful to me.

OC Genie is auto-tuning software and often uses too high a voltage. You can manually tweak and test it and likely get a better OC at lower voltage and temps.

It's worth the time and effort.

Ok so do you reccomend reverting to default in bios and OC-ing manually?

Games are more likely to cause an increase in fan speed. While certain programs may stress the CPU more, the resulting heat from the GPU and CPU being stress during gaming defiantly cause the CPU to heat up.

The OC Genie built into you're motherboard is probably bumping up your voltage, as most OC utilities will do. This increases heat. It may also control fan speed.

Yes, you want to disable cool, n, quite. It's almost useless on an overclocked system.

I don't know if your motherboard let's you target temperature or rpm for fan speed. A good rule of thumb is to run at 50% fan speed for safe temps (0-47c). After that point, Increase fan speed 10% every 6.

With your overclock of only 0.2 GHz, I would. Just bump up the core clock multiplier by 2 and you should be good.

Yeah, the only reason for the minimalistic overclock is that my PSU cannot handle speeds past 3.2 and I don't want to risk the system.

If it's that close to being an issue, you might want to upgrade you're PSU within the year. Power supplies lose a percentage of max output each year due to capacitor aging.
