    What kind of motherboard have you got?Some mobos will change cpu fan speed as the temperature changes - when your not working your processor its cooler and therefore the fan spins slower.
    Thats only thing i can think of off top of my head

    possible if fan stays low or keeps going lower, the fan needs lubrication or replacement
