Hp fan runs louder now!!

Pavilion 15-ab016nx
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)
My hp laptop's fan runs fast and louder now. Whenever cpu usage touch and goes above 50%, fan start to run louder without taking any minute. When usage goes under 20% then fan quiet.
My question is why hp fan run so much quickly?? Just touch 50% cpu usage and fan runs louder enough to make noise in room. Heat sink etc should absorb heat for sometime i guess and hope so...

What do you mean by "now"?  Did you recently install, upgrade, or do anything to your notebook that would make the fan run more often? 

 

At any rate, I would recommend you first update the HP system BIOS (download link) then see if you still have the same issue.

Is this while you're running the games?

Yup almost.... Whenever cpu usage touches 50% whatever i am doing, fan starts to shout....
I was hoping that whenever cpu is working hard, cool sink etc will control the temperature for some time. But just going above 50% fan shouts

Well, the fan runs harder if the system is running hotter so that's normal.  You can try things to make the system run cooler:  use compressed air to blow dust from the vents, replace the thermal pad/paste on the CPU, use an external fan to keep the system cooler.
