Default Fanless heatsink

What's a good fanless HSF for socket A? My current temps are 50c idle with this noisy Spire HSF.
Would a fanless heatsink provide enough cooling if I let the rear case fan blow inside the case?

The key is to not use a fanless heatsink but a good heatsink with a quite fan. Check out the Zalman HSF they are really quite and they have a fan speed controller so you can turn the fan down even lower.

Check this out too:

I recommend the Thermaltake Big Typhoon if your case is big enough, it is really quiet, only like 14 dba but cools very well. I researched it a bit cause i am going to get one once i scratch together another $50
