Default Fan Advice

I'm lookin to buy a new CPU fan and some case fans. I'd like something really quiet. I don't really care about LED or anything like that. Case fans are 92mm and CPU fan is P4 prescott 478 socket.

Dell E1705
Intel Core 2 Duo 2.0GHz T7200
2GB DDR2 667MHz
80GB 5400RPM HDD
256MB nVidia 7900 GeForce Go

The CPU fan in my sig is really quite on lowest speed (turning it up acctually makes it hotter???!)

quite easy to install and my CPU temps are down from 50 degress with the stock heatsink to 33-39 degress. Very good improvement.

Heres a picture:
