Same for me as well. I have 6 Desktops and most of the make a LOT of noise because of fans. It doesn't bother me anymore because they are in my office and I mostly play games. Turn up the game and you won't hear anything. I don't overclock either. Never have. Todays CPU's are so advanced that they can throttle themselves depending on the need. You should be able to adjust how much it throttles, but it depends on what you are doing.
