If you're talking about the CPU cooler, that's not the problem. The highest temperature I got from 3.9Ghz is 47C. That's not much higher than where my E6600 idles at 3.6Ghz. Temperature is not the problem here. I think the board may be the culprit, but I'm not really sure.
I'll test it more later, but as of right now, my fiance's computer is almost silent, and I think she wants to keep it that way.
