Default HSF Help

My friend is going to be getting a new system here soon. He will be getting a A64 3200+ (X2 3800+ or C2D E6300 if he can swing it). He needs quiet. I don't know how quiet the stock HSF on A64's are so I am asking for recommendations. Quieter the better, but cooling can't be worse that stock cooling. It's socket AM2, by the way.

It's not the sound output from the speakers on this one. It's the sound of the parts running that really gets to me. The system I have right now tends to be too loud, and so I want my next system (http://www.techist.com/showthread.ph...hreadid=114033) to be quieter.

1200mm? That's some pretty serious cooling!
