Go to your Preferences, find the option "Use at most X% of CPU time" with the description "Can be used to reduce heat". By default X = 100%. Change it to something like 75% or 50%. Save your preferences.
The next time BOINC checks for more work, it will notice that your preferences have changed and it will automatically download the new preferencs and begin using them immediately.

But first see if removing the dust bunnies helps reducing the noise.
There's also an external tool (TThrottle) that works "better" than the builtin BOINC throttle mechanism.
