I am looking for a new heatsink since I want my computer to be quieter. Right now I have a GlobalWin CAK38 which is rated 46.5dba. I am looking for a new heatsink with a much quieter fan but can be used on an Athlon XP 1800+ and possibly the new Thoroughbreds. I also am looking for quieter case fans. I have 3 80mm fans and one 60mm fans. The quietest fans I can find are the Vantec 80mm (21.0 dba) and 60mm (20.0 dba) Stealth Fans. Are there any quieter than that? And what is a good and quiet heatsink? Thanks.

Check out the Arkua 7528. It's the quieter version of their top of the line fan.

Yo SkaGuy! How's it going?
Check out my review of the Thermaltake Volcano7+. With it's variable speed fan, it can be as quiet as you need it to be.

:wink:

So I think I will get the Vantec Stealth for case fans (2 80mm and 1 60mm) and a Thermalrigth AX-7 with a Thermaltake 80mm Smart Fan. The Vantec Stealth fans are rated at 21dba and 20dba. The Thermaltake Smart Fan is rated at 27dba at lowest speed and 39dba at the highest. So do you think those fans will lower the loudness of my computer?

I got an Enermax Thermal Controlled Fan instead for the Thermalright AX-7 heatsink. It has a thermal probe to detect the tempature. Where is the best place for the thermal probe for the CPU?

A quick look at latest Tigerdirect catalog will show you 15 fan/heatsinks which will handle different speeds of cpus. Fan/heatsink designs are still changing by the day, for faster and faster cpus.

It will give you a quick idea of fans and why one works better than another?
