I've just installed Fedora 17 (x86_64) on my Dell XPS 8300 with Intel

lot of noise (fan speed is at the same level it was right after powering

I previously had Ubuntu 12.xx and Debian 6 installed and no such fault
was present. Is it really something so advanced to have the ability to
reduce fan speed that Fedora devels are unable to accomplish in default
installation of stable system release?

I imagine, I have to download and install some additional packages or
even patch and recompile the kernel but I can't find any info about this
on the Internet. I'd be grateful if anyone could help me or point me to
some solution before my fan breaks down prematurely.

There may be processes running that you don't need that are consuming CPU or even some process hogging the CPU.

You may have some control of fan speed via the BIOS, not sure, also see:
