Describe the louder fan noise... is it the same sound as the softer
one but just louder or is it making a whirring sound?
I don't think it's based on CPU useage / amount of heat generated but
rather in startup script, it'll switch the fan to the higher speed.
In any case, slimserver will be the process that uses the most CPU
cycles. Most every other process is simply sleeping unless you make
heavy use of it (such as Samba).
The fan speed setting is usually hidden from the web interface but
there is a way to "unhide" it. I don't remember how though... Look in
the .pl files if you're so inclined (or use the search function in the
forum, I might have even written something about it some time last
