I hear ya, i just know that my cooler was loud at heck because mine was maxing itself out.
@JamesBond - If its not the CPU fan, it looks like a fan that does not have a RPM monitor wire(The yellow wire on most 3 pin fan connector)
Another thing i noticed about my asus motherboard is that even on silent mode, if a fan does not have the yellow 3rd pin, it wont be able to calibrate the rpm speed so it will just send the full 12 volts which will max the fan rpm out
