THIS IS COMMON WHEN YOUR HEAR THE LOUD NOISES IS NOT THE PROCESSOR THAT MAKE THESE NOISES ITS THE FAN LOCATED ON TOP OF THE PROCESSOR IF YOU THINK OF REMOVING THE FAN THE NOISE WILL DEMINISH BUT THE CPU FAN IS CRUCIAL TO YOUR COMPUTER IT KEEPS THE PROCESSOR FROM OVERHEATING WHICH CAN KEEP YOUR COMPUTER FROM CRASHING TO MAKE SURE THERE ISN'T A PROBLEM WITH THE FAN MAKE SURE THE CLAMPS HOLDING THE FAN IN PLACE IS SECURE THIS MAY BE WHY IT MAY BE MAKING EXCESSIVE NOISE.
