I just built my new build and i went to play some games but the cpu fan/heatsink is SOOOOOO loud!!! I mean it sounds like someones vacuuming in the next room. Speedfan and the BIOS said it was running (idle) at over 2000 rpm, and gaming is like 5 times louder then that.
Is there anything i cano do or do i have to throw more money after an aftermarket cooler
BTW my temps range from 35 - 45 idle, dont know about load

If you have cool n quiet enabled in the bios the fan will speed up and slow down with cpu temps.
The stock fans are loud.
Temps seem ok, check the under load with Prime95 or OCCT.
If your going to be doing a lot of cpu intensive gaming etc the cpu will heat up and the fan will speed up = more noise.
Aftermarket coolers will keep your cpu cooler and lots with 120mm fans+ can be nice and quiet.
Throwing money isn't a waste if it keeps your cpu cooler and quieter.
I don't know what kind of motherboard you have but I have an MSI 790FX-GD70. In my BIOS, under H/W Monitor, there's a setting called "CPU Smart Fan Target". I currently have this set to 50C. This then enables another setting I can change which is called "CPU Min fan speed", and I have this set to 37.5%. This can really bring the noise down. Your BIOS probably has some sort of Smart Fan function too. The settings might be named different though. See if it does and test it out.
Is that quiet while under heavy load? I want something which cools the same or better but is quiet enough to not notice while gaming
That usually means spending more money or you can replace the fans with silent ones.
