Quietest fan for LGA 775?

Can anyone help, there are few decibal/sone noise benchmarks out there for the different cpu fans available. I have a MSI neo 965 motherboard (lga 775) and wanted to know what the quietest fan available is for my CPU.

By the way I have already tried the Freezer 7 Pro - 28dB (and standrd Intel stock cooler fan - 36dB). I need something quieter, ideally from as I have vouchers for them!

Thanks in advance,

    hi mi1ez, thanks, but rate in what sense? noise? temperature? im specifically looking for a quiet quiet fan, thats not going to toast my cpu, the intel stock cooler fan keeps my cpu at 60 degrees C but its too loud and the freezer7pro keeps it about 40-50 degrees C and its not much quieter. scythe are quiet? any particular model?
