It looks like the fan is just clamped on, if you don't see any screws on it, just pull on those little clips that hold it on to the heatsink. After that, you probably remove the clamping bracket off the fan & just put a new fan in the bracket, by my assumption.
EDIT: I forgot, you may not have to replace the fan - try changing the fan speeds in the BIOS?

Did you properly apply thermal compound & sat the heatsink down on the CPU properly? Maybe it's not cooling correctly, so the fan is running faster to compensate. Generally that happens.

You should try reseating it again properly, and I think I'm right - the fan has little clips on the heat sink's fins, try pulling the clips on one side to release it.

Get a fan speed controller there every where on ebay for a few bucks Zalman makes a good cheap one, and you can just dial in the speed you want,

I meant to mention do as payturr suggest check the seating and make sure there is a sufficient amount of compound if that doesn't work check into a fan controller, by the way what model mother board are you working with,

To be honest, the less paste he put on though the better - he just needed the die area covered.

Also do as payturr said the fan is just clamped on peel it off like he said then there are little rubber pads in each corner instead of peeling them off just stick a small Phillips head screw driver through the pads and loosen the screws. you need to keep those pads on there.

OK your board does have fan control it has 2 cpu fan terminals on the mother board a 3 pin and a 4 pin the 4 pin employs PWM (pulse width modulation ) that tells your bios that there is a fan spinning if it dosent detect a certain amount of minimum (usally 600)rpm's it shuts down. we know that isn't the problem, If I'm right your fan has a 3 pin connector, make you sure it is plugged into the cpu terminal and not a chassis fan terminal , run through your bios again and check for fan controls look for this

sorry,yea or just a quieter fan I've seen 92mm fans on ebay pretty cheap, BTW can you try your fan on another board or different H/S fan on your board,maybe borrow a buddy's,Just to make sure it isnt a M/B issue,
