Use cable ties, i dont know what those temps are in real measurments(CPU temps are celsius, and i only do metric anyway, i cant be bothered converting stuff to much of a pain).

Make sure the fans are screwed on properly.

So its not a stock HSF, that would probably mean temps should be reasonable, do you have reason to suspect there might be something wrong with the temperatures.

Well if you try opeing up your case and take a good listen and find out whats making all the noise we can possibly see if we can help you take some appropriate noise reduction measures.
