Thermalright SLK-900A is a good HS, I love mine but you have to be careful its very heavy. IM using a smartfan 2 at 3800rpm, Ive ordered a 92mm panaflow looking forward to trying it.

I run it on a rheostat that I bought at Radio Shack. To make air is to make some noise.You can adjust it to your cooling/noise ratio you desire.Getting too quite of fan will not dissapate the heat off of the HS. This fan has high air pressure and is the best economical choise IMHO to date.Cooling and your PSU are the 2 most important aspects of your rigs stability and health.THE FANMAN:cool:

The only air cooling quiteness I know of with out being sarcastic is turning the fans down or the rig off.The other choise is extreme cooling.They all run fans to disapate the processors heat.With a high pressure fan like the Panaflo U1A 92mm you can adjust up when you need it and down when you dont. The 92mm fan may not concentrate the air to the HS as effciently as the 80mm fan.

SK-7s are GREAT heatsinks if you can still find them. if not, get a ALX-800 here:

i'd suggest a Smart Fan 2, turn it down for winter, turn it up for summer. turn it up for gaming, turn it down for sleeping. or just get a tornado and some sort of rheobus like a Sunbeam.
