How to speed up my R3?

Hi there,
After a conversation about optimization, a guy advised trying the creative mode or the game mode.
I checked in the command center and I can only find the game mode.
What I'm trying to figure out is the following:
  1. Is there a way to improve the performance when it comes to 3D software? I use C4D, Blender 3D, I do particle simulations and a few other 3d related tasks. I was expecting some better results from my Alienware, not that is bad, but I have the feeling somehow I'm not taking full advantage from the Threadripper.
  2. Sometimes the fans spin quite intense generating quite a lot of noise. Should I leave that as is or is there something I can do in order to optimize it?
I did a test using the Support Assist / Scan Hardware: at some point, after I launched the test, it got quite intense, I never heard the fan spinning that much, and the noise was only increasing and getting worse. I think the temperature was going above 105 degrees. I then interrupted the test. Was that normal?

I hope someone can shed some light on my questions.
