    Default CPU gets very loud when i play rift

    I have an i7 processor but it seems that when I play rift it gets very loud I do have it on ultra any suggestions to make it run smoother and quieter?

    First of all, its most likely the fan which is cooling the cpu which may be causing the noise.
    Are you sure it is not your gfx card?

    Is it a laptop or desktop?

    When processor has to do a lot of calculations it gets hot. When it gets hot, the stock cooler supplied with the processor starts spinning faster and it can be extremely loud. Only way to solve this is to purchase and install an aftermarket cooler. You can get a decent and quiet one for $40 + possible installation if done by a store.
