Default CPU fans

I'm looking for cool my:

The current fan that came with the processor is pretty **** noisy. You think these fans are alot quieter?

I was looking at the recommended computer hardware sticky and saw these 2 cpu fans:

1. Opinions on this fan. Its compatible right?
Newegg.com - ARCTIC COOLING Freezer 64 Pro 92mm CPU Cooler - CPU Fans & Heatsinks

2. Rifle Fan? What's that?
Newegg.com - XIGMATEK HDT-SD964 92mm Rifle CPU Cooler - CPU Fans & Heatsinks

Opinions, comments and concerns please do tell.

AC freezer 64 pro, is a great little fan for the price, frequently recommended around here and it will fit the athlon 64.

Did you try pulling your fan, giving it a good cleaning?

I would use the ARTIC COOLING. It's just a personal preference. It seems to be pretty quite, just make sure you have enough room. That seems to be a common gripe among the customers.
