CPU cooler is really loud, even though the CPU isnt hot at all?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I built my friend a computer, and used his old CPU in the build, which is an Athlon X2 5400+. I got a new motherboard also, and Biostar. Dont remember its exact model number, but its a mATX with an AM2 socket. Every time a load is put on the CPU, lets say opening up a game, the fan goes crazy and spins at 100%. I enabled Smart Fan in the BIOS and set it as quiet, but it still spins too fast. The temperatures of the CPU dont go above 45C. Could the motherboard be faulty?
