Default Pointers on a new CPU cooler

I have just built a new computer, its great, fast, runs cool (for an AMD). Just one problem, the 7 case fans are quiet, but the Volcano 11 heatsink/fan is the noisiest thing on earth, damn thing sounds like a Hoover.

I would like suggestions for a new QUIET, but effective CPU cooler. (not water cooled).

Sony 3½" floppy drive
Sapphire Radeon 9600 XT 256Mb DDR AGP DVI/TVO graphics card
Creative Labs Soundblaster Audigy LS PCI 24-bit 5.1 sound card
D-Link 56K Modem
BT Voyager 100 ADSL Modem
LG L1811S 18" TFT monitor
Cambridge Soundworks/Creative Labs 5.1 speakers

Volcano just came out with the tornado 12 and there is one that is supposedly a much quieter solution with better air flow, you might want to check that out.

you could also check into an ultra tmd. Then have the motors on the outside of the fan by the fins. They cool really well and are much quieter
