Loud Fan

HI I am using this machine as a Home Theatre PC running libreelec.
As such having it quiet is important.
The Fan at times spins up and gets loud. This can be every few minutes.
Is there any controls I am use to mitigate this, any BIOS settings that I can alter?

thanks.

What exactly are you running on it when the fan spins at high level?
I assume it just be video in 4k or something?

Can you check if the video playback is making use of the hw acc(gpu) and not the cpu.

You can also check if the cpu running at higher frequency when under load?
This will show why fans is spinning so fast.
