Can be the fan is going too. The bearings in fans sometimes go. Especially if you blow them out with an air compressor. Try looking on ebay for a new fan for your cpu. Don't use a cheap thermal paste either. A decent one will be about $10+. I recommend this or this. Both are excellent paste's and have always kept my temps down on my computers. If you replace the fan I'm sure you won't have any issues with noise.

Just for your information too. All CPU's and GPU's get hot when gaming. Most Intel processors can run upto 105c and AMD's can run around the same too. Anything up to 85c isn't of any worry for me usually. Just make sure it's in a good spot that has good airflow too. That always helps.

Best of luck!

This answer was originally to another question.

Chip could be going bad, thermal paste under the chip cap hardened and went bad, or not enough airflow from the fan. You can mod the case to improve airflow. There are videos on youtube. Other solutions will require a visit to the repair shop.
