I'm not sure how noisy this one is but Thermaltake makes them.
Just search Thermaltake chipset or north/south bridge cooler.
You should try to find a review.

Link didn't work for me.

Thermalright NB-1 is a nice little heatsink and fan for the chipset.

Also if you care to spend $30 for a nb cooler ( considering your system I don't think It'd be that big of a dent in your wallet ) then you could get a Northpole Microcooler from frozencpu.com or sidewindercomputers.com

I don't notice the fan in my system, but on that one it spins at 8500RPM so if you have a really really quiet system you might notice it.

somehow you could attach a 80mm fan onto it and run it at like 800rpm, i dont know how you would do it.
