Put a new Noctua cooler in this computer.

I put my fan curves back to "Normal" and even at the default, even when the fan ramps up, I don't really hear it like I did with the Cooler Bastard

It also gives me an option to just run the cooler fan at a fixed, higher speed at all times.


Of course the Noctua was three times the price of the Cooler Master, so it BETTER work better ;o)

Amazing that CPU temps in operation mostly start with a "3" now

So maybe I didn't have things quite right with the old cooler, or I really did need a better cooler. Either way, that's that problem fixed!
