my processer came with aluminun heat sink and a small 70mm fan. i see the newer intel hsf has a copper core with aluminum cooling fins, looks much better...

i just want a silent fan. thats all. if i can lower my temps significantly, that would be even better. i'm looking on a few but still skeptical right now.

Look on some site, such as www.newegg.com, and look at the fans. All the decent ones will list noise level in dBA and air flow in CFM. CFM stands for cubic feet per minute. This is how much air is theoretically moved by the fan. RPM is revolutions per minute, which is nominal and means nothing by itself. For example, given 2 fans, 100 rpm and 10,000 rpm, you have no idea which one is moving more air. What if the 100rpm fan is a jet turbine engine, and the 10,000rpm fan is a 8cm case fan?

Basically, look at *bigger* fans for less noise, because bigger fans (like the jet engine example) can move more air at lower RPM. RPM is usually the main contributor to noise.

If the noise really pisses you off, the only thing you can resort to is water cooling. This can be $200+ and time consuming, as well as dangerous if you don't know what you're doing.

I maintain my previous argument.

Just saying "You don't like it" sounds like you have no idea what you're talking about.
Even if you know it's not going to die, your argument makes no sense.

Maybe you should take your lack of knowledge and your sophomoric attitude somewhere else. Like a blog. Or livejournal.
