You have to work out which fan it is, it could be the case fan if its connected to the motherboard or it could be the CPU fan or it could be the graphics card fan. Its obviously that its getting hotter when playing a game and in order to stop any damage its increasing the fan speed to compensate. You'll have to work out which fan it is and see if you can get a replacement.

If you've got room on your hard drive try installing the game, if it won't install put the contents of the disc into a folder in my documents and configure it to run from there. You can always send a shortcut to the desktop, I do that with all the games on my PC and it saves wearing your CD/DVD ROM out too.
