Take heatsink off and examine the bottom. Remove the
original TIM material and if it's not silky smooth (need not
be mirror shiney) then lap it. Reinstall with decent thin
layer of thermal paste. Optimizing the CPU / 'sink
interface is very useful for allowing lower airflow to
achieve acceptible results.
With cooler performing at optimal levels, use one of myriad
options to reduce fan RPM. Shoot for sub-2400 RPM for low
noise, even lower for near/silent.
