Default noisy pc

I recently purchased a VAIO VGC-RB33G

Intel Pentium 4 3.6 w/ HT
Intel D915GAG Motherboard
Radeon X300
1024 mb RAM

One thing that I noticed was how noisy it was. I think it is the fan thats making all that noise. Will replacing it with a new one reduce/eliminate the noise? And, what fan would you recommend that I use?

I think this computer has water cooling, so you want to see the size of the fan and how fast is spins (RPM).
