About the only thing I can think of is you could try reseating the hsf and reapplying some heatsink compound. Just be warned that if you have a retail processor that you may void your warranty if you do this. NOTE: if you do this you need to clean the processor and heatsink of all the old compound and reaply some new stuff in a thin a layer as possible. When I did this it dropped my temps about 10 degrees which might keep your fan from spinning up so much. Good luck
Good advice, but one clarification -- if you do this right, the heat from the processor will be more readily transferred to the heatsink. The processor will be cooler than before, but the heatsink will be hotter (this is a good thing). Whether the fan slows down or speeds up depends on where the temperature is being sensed -- could be inside the chip, or on the outside of the chip (inside the socket), or on the HS (mostly older MBs).

Some like my Matrox Millennium P750 triple output, have a fan on it, this is also a heat sensitive fan.
I mainly use this for 2D Autocad, but on 3D stuff, the fan makes more noise than the CPU and power supply together!
I actualy got an other fan that is less noisy and partly solved the problem. I will install a duct from it to the exterior of the PC
