Does anyone know why the fan is so loud, its very quiet at idle and hits about 29-34 degrees but under load it hits about 60 and sounds like a jet at takeoff even at the "silent" setting in AI suite. I think I might have messed up installation slightly as I think I put on a tad more thermal paste than I should of also the contact plate isnt central to the cpu. Should a re-install it? ( this was my first time installing a non-stock heatsink).

Also I have 2 slots for 120mm fans about 2" above the cooler if I put 2 fans here would temps drop considerably?

Thanks, Duck
