HELP! AMD Phenom II x4 965 overheating - best cooler

Hi,
My AMD Phenom II x4 965 is idling on 50 degrees, surfing internet on 52 - 53 degrees. I use Speed Fan for regulation torgue speed. When I play games such as Battlefield 3, Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3, Starcraft II, Dishonored the degrees are still on 54 but the fan makes huge noise like i even dont hear sound in headphones. Ocasinaly i have stock cooler there and my questin is: Will be Arctic cooling Freezer Pro 7 Rev. 2 enough?? I had it in my old PC and CPU never get above 35 degrees, but it was only Intel core 2 Duo.
Thanks fo help.

Tomas
