"73 degrees is a little high if you ask me. The RPM of your fan is determined by a host of things but ~4000 is fine I tend to like slower fans that move more air because they are quieter. If the noise is bothering you buy a large fan/heatsink for $30-40 and replace it
EDIT: After seeing the pics... That looks like a stock CPU fan, I'd replace it with something quieter, it will bring the temp on your CPU down and be much quieter. When you pick something make sure it's going to fit. You don't have a whole lot of space between the CPU and the RAM"
