Answers :

In some mother boards, there is a setting for the fan and you may want to look in to that.
How old is this computer? you may want to clean the CPU fan and radiator.
You may also want to remove the old thermal compound on the top of the CPU and apply a fresh thermal compound.

Its good to have faster fan for the processor to make the processor rurs cooler. but if you wish to have a slower amper level, and compatible for the pc.
