Default cpu cooler advice

I am trying to get my system a bit more quiet and cooler for OC'ing.
The noisiest thing is the stock Athlon64 3800+X2 fan.

I was about to order a Thermaltake CL-P0114.

But I am concered that it will effect my exhaust fan? Is this a big deal?
Pic inside my rig:

I recently installed a NBJ47 It did wonders. And it is quieter than the stock Nbridge fan. lol
I have a Scythe 120 800rpm blowing on it and it never goes above 30C
I also have an antec tri-cool exhaust set at med.

ASUS A8N-E rev2 1013
Athlon 64 3800+ X2 S939
Antec Sonata2 smart pow 450 (kinda loud thumping)
WD Caviar SE16 WD2500KS 250GB 16MB SATA 3.0Gb/s
ASUS Extreme N6600LE Silencer/TD/256M
Corsair XMS Twinx2048-3200c2

Any suggestions are appreciated.

the hsf u choose is not the best by any means... for one thing, it blows the heat that was just removed from the chip back down onto it... take a look at these other options, they are alil pricer, but for 5 bucks more u will def get better heat removal

Zalman cnps9500

scythe inf

Asus Silent Square

and best of all:
scythe ninja

are all better than that one... more heatpipes = more heat transfer...
zalman has 6 heatpipes, but better hs design as well as the scythe inf
asus has 8 heat pipes
scythe ninja has 12

theres an article somewhere that reviewed a bunch of cpu hsf's and the ninja came out on top
