CPU would never make noises - are you talking about the Fan? What is your CPU type/motherboard. Possibly you may be talking about the graphics card fan? If so what card is it? –  fossfreedom Jan 13 '12 at 11:10
    
This is not an OS related problem. It's hw. –  gajdipajti Jan 13 '12 at 11:58
    
Oh, I forgot: vote to close, as this is a hardware issue. –  htorque Jan 13 '12 at 12:42

You are hearing the capacitors. When you are using your CPU it consumes more power. You hear the noise generated by the capacitors in your audio and close to the machine. The only thing to try, is to enable the Spread Spectrum in Bios, which might lower the noise. This is not an OS related bug, this is hardware.

Yes its an OS related problem. Because that in Windows 7 The FANS not make noises there. –  aviad Jan 13 '12 at 14:35
    
and.my CPU its Intel Core 2 Quad q8200 2.33GHz and my GPU its NVIDIA GeForce 9800GT 1GB –  aviad Jan 13 '12 at 14:45
    
Install cpufreq-utils. Itt will load the required modules, and restart. But on a normal setup, the cpu has a govenor loaded, but try this. –  gajdipajti Jan 13 '12 at 15:09
