I don't need any super cooler here but I've got an AMD 1.0ghz 266 in an unfinished computer and was wondering what a good fan is for mediocre overclocking, nothing major. Noise drives me crazy so I don't want anything loud. Sorry to be picky but nothing to expensive either. Thanks for the help.

YS Tech and Sunon both make quiet 60mm fans for a heatsink.
im not sure if a Thermaltake Volcano II is up for cooling a T-Bird
but its relatively quiet and works well on my duron 850
and remember to get the most out of an HSF you gotta invest in some Arctic Silver II and some sandpaper for lapping the heatsink.
if your not sure about lapping there is some pretty good tutorials out on the net , just gotta search for them :)
If you want your way, be prepared to pay for it, including shipping. The Noise Control Silverado is what you want. It is made in and distributed from Germany. The price is $67.00 US + $22.00 US for shipping.
