if your CPU is making noise, then you have a major problem. do you mean the cooling fans?

you will probably have to set C-states and/or EIST settings in the morherboard's BIOS manually for the frequency to step down when not in heavy use.

in UEFI set "Intel turbo boost technology" - Enabled,
 
It would be helpful to know what CPU we are discussing as well... (you might need to check your task manager and see if perhaps you have picked up some malware that might have your CPU tied 100% busy mining bitcoin or etherium, etc..)

(As the Asrock 970M is an AM3 motherboard, suggestions regarding Intel boost settings from dissimilar mainboards are notreally relevant...)

now that you have offered some small bit of information regarding the system, you may get some more detailed help.

Intel's EIST settings will not apply to this AMD chipset.

AMD Cool & Quiet settings should enable stepping down to lower frequencies when not in heavy use. haven't worked with these old chipsets in some years so you will have to research exact details.
