Anybody else using Intel stock cooler with their Kaby Lake CPU?

Cases & Cooling - AnandTech Forums - forums.anandtech.com
I recently updated by son's computer with an i5-7500 CPU. Since there is no overclocking, I just installed the included cooler. However, the thing spins up and down so frequently, it sounds like one of the old Delta fans that kind of sounded like a vacuum.

I replaced it with a stock Intel cooler from a Haswell CPU (E97379-001) with a copper core and much denser fins. It is much quieter, but surprisingly runs a little warmer than the all aluminum cooler (E97379-003).

So, did my Kaby Lake CPU come with a defective cooler, or are they just louder due to less fins and all aluminum construction?
