Default Can someone reccomend me a good, but mainly Quiet Heatsink/Fan for my Athlon 3000?

My stock heatsink/fan for my s939 Athlon 64 is getting too loud for me to take. Everytime i stop the fan it gets so much quiter so I know its that, that is making all the noise. I see on newegg how they say, "dba" to tlak about noise level. Is the higher the better or what? Also i see some say, "sone" instead. What is the difference? Basically i just want to buy a new heatsink/fan for my s939 cpu, and i want it to be quiet. Can someone help me out here, or at least explain to me how the noise level numbers work. Thanx

Thanks, but $40 is kind of expensive for a heatsink fan. I was thinking something like $25 or so, $30 at most.
