My System Specs

Default

At idle my stock i5 2500k fan (for the short time I tried it out) was inaudible behind undervolted 120mm case fans. (I believe I was using Scythe S-Flex fans back then.) You will hear the Intel fan at load though.

Does the sound change if you run a CPU stress test (e.g. IntelBurnTest) while doing nothing with the GPU? If there is no change in the sound, I'd check if the fan speed is correctly ramping up and down.
