I assume that you have a prebuilt PC.

When your CPU reaches a certain temperature it will make the fans spin faster/Go in in your case.

If you want them to run normally there should be a option in the BIOS for it. I wouldn't turn them off though.

Does it only happen in games? If it happens in windows too, it might be your power supply.
