High Power Usage With New System

Hi guys,

I have one question, I just barely noticed that just by surfing the web the fan noise constantly increased/varies, just by simply scrolling around here, Task Manager shows Power Usage changing from moderate to high constantly.  That's trippin.

The CPU shows 1% and Memory 17%. I'm not sure if is the CPU or the GPU that's making the louder fan increase sound. Never had this issue with the plain i7-6700K system hahaha I guess there is ALWAYS pros and cons with everything in life and the only time my previous system would crank up that fan noise was during import/export in Lightroom.

What's causing the fan going up and down? Is there a way to minimize that effect? I had no idea I would be using high power just by surfing the web.
