I just put togethermy first home build and have got good benchmark except for one problem the fan noise produced by the phenom 965 is very loud,it sounds like a jet engine!! lol, but seriously if I install a cooler will this solve this, I used arctic silver 5, my idle temps are 46 celsius is this normal?

Yes, an aftermarket HSF should not be as loud or just replace the stock fan with a lower DbA fan.

Your temps seem a little high for stock temps unless you are looking a 89c ambient temps in your room. Based on those temps, I would recommend an HSF for that reason alone. Of course, the thermal compound may be too thick or the HSF isn't fully seated, which will all effect your CPU temps.

On a stock HSF, your temps seem about right maybe a little high but nothing to be majorly concerned about.
