Default Fan Noise too loud

Hello. Any suggestions on how I can easily cut down on my fan noise? It sounds like there is a lawn mower in here. Please tell me I can just buy a new fan for my processor... or maybe it's the PSU that's so loud. Thanks!

Google SpeedFan.

It allows you to vary the speed of your internal fans. Mess around with it til you get a stable, low temperature and desired noise output.

Or, you could just buy new fans.

there should be a little sticker on all of your fans and peel that of and there should be a bearing spray that LIGHTLY with wd-40 and let it soak for a few seconds then start shake till all of the exess comes off then repeat and shake it put the sticker back on so it looks new. that has helped me and my HSF alot but I have the stock one.

I once changed fan speed in bios, the setting said something like - cpu fan controller, it was set to automatic and was automatically set at 100%, I could hear it from other rooms in the house.

I changed that setting to - enable, and it fixed it and temps are still in the 50's so its all good.
