SOURCE: We have around 30 units
I had all of these same issues, I rebuilt the entire computer with all new hardware from Dell, it still sounds like a turbo jet. The CPU fan is a blower fan, so the more CPU resources you use, the fan blows faster to keep the CPU cool.

Tips for a great answer:
check the Cmos battery and computer RAM modules make sure they are securely seated with no dust built up or in the sockets on some motherboards cmos batteries are soldered in
check you CPU make sure its securely seated and has thermal grease might be getting to hot
another possible reason could be a memory dump you might be running to many programs at the one time putting to much strain on the CPU central processing unit
hope this helps
