Maybe I know Who to blame -- the Nouveau driver? There's tons of complaining
that it drives noisy fan like a tank or 747 taking off. [1] [2] [3] [4]

The situation is that Nouveau lacks power management feature, its fan speed
control is horrible not implemented and on some hardware defaults to *full*
speed [5]

As far as I know, there's no remedy on user-space so far, but some progress is
in the kernel and probably in a near future it's possible. [6]

Instead, could you try the proprietary Nvidia driver and see it fixes the issue
for you? [7]

HTH.
