The problem may be you have got small 60mm fans with high RPM on the CPU, I used to do this, then I got an adapter and ran a large 80mm fan with medium RPM and it decresed tems slightly and noise dramattically... another good thing to do when you have a larger fan is run them at a lower voltage so they move as much air as a small fan but move much much slower, in some cases they cam become almost silent.
The reason I went in the extreme direction of watercooling is because I either needed huge airflow and noisy fans, or water cooling which is more effective than air cooling, and that is all due to me overclocking the PC
