Default so this is what happened

i won a long time ago a cool looking bronze cpu fan and heat sink. I have a 2.8 ghz intel cpu and i wasn't convinced i wanted to stick it in to replace my stock fan + heatsink. but an overclocker at this lan party convinced me it would be a good idea. so i've finally done it and so far its annoyed the hell out of me... i dont know what temperature it was running at before.

what i think is that this think is running all out all the time... what can i do to decrease the rpm?
