What kind of noise is it making?
If it hums like a small jet engine, then the fan is probably running at max. RPM's because the CPU is hot.
Any decent aftermarket HSF is going to be a whole lot better than the stock AMD HSF.
Idling in the low to mid-30's, mid-50's or lower under full (100%) stess is what I would target.
