  1. I mean fan.

    My QX6700 with stock Intel fan is loud.

    I have used ThermalTake CPU paste but it's still loud.

    What do I do?

    Buy a new cooler, if Q fan is enabled it will speed up as your cpu needs it.

    Applying better TIM will not help fan noise. You need a new cooler as supersmashbrada suggested. Try getting one with the potential for both active and passive cooling, like the Thermalright Ultra-120 Extreme.

    I have Q-FAN enabled for a reason... without it the fan runs at max speed which is stupidly fast!
