Normal temps high 40s at idle, low 60s at load. Speedfan will let you lower fan speeds and its free. Google it and download.

Oops. sorry. Well another solution might be to go into the bios and change when the fan will turn on.

you can get a quieter heatsink and fan.
I can tell you it's a socket 775 cooler you'll be looking for

I did my best to clean out the dust.. I tried the computer without the case on and it worked okay.......the noise is reduced....the noise seems to be coming from the fan near the cpu...

I think I just found the perfect solution to my problem...I just open the case and put a stack of ice packs and frozen drinks besides my computer....the noise is greatly reduced...and hopefully it will stay that way.....
