Case fans and cpu coolers question.

hey guys,I've been wanting to buy new case fans to replace my stock ones and a new cpu cooler because the stock one is just too loud and doesn't really do a good job of cooling the cpu...

so I've narrored it down to these components.

what do you guys think?I want to have as little noise as possible without sacrificing too much temperature.
I live in Greece so temps are pretty high here...

oh yea...I have an AMD athlon 5600+,ATI radeon 4850,Motherboard ASUS ALiveDual-eSATA2, 2 gigs of ram,windows 7 professional.

nothing is overclocked and everything has it's stock fans and cooling.although in the future I may consider overclocking the gpu a bit...

here's the store's site where I'm gonna buy them from,if you see anything worth noting please let me know http://www.plaisio.gr

I can't order though the internet(and I don't prefer it anyway) so links to online stores are pretty much uselless

thanks

More about case fans coolers question
  1. I like case fans that are not less than 50CFM, Arctic cooling makes some high-volume, low noise 120mms, so does Scythe. There are others, but I actually use those I mentioned.
  2. that coolermaster hyper 212 plus looks pretty good i4yue...the others are simply too expensive...

    I don't need anything extreme...something that's better and quiter than the stock ones
  3. Both the nelimatech and de coolermaster are excellent coolers.

    Heard that the prolimatech was a little better but much more expensive. if you dont OC your cpu too much you wont be in any trouble with either of them. they will do nicely.

    To give another suggestion im using the scythe mugen II rev. b on my Q9550 and it does the job perfect.

    low noise even at 90% and u huge air displacement.

    OCed to 3.4GHz and keeps my temps at 48C full load.
  4. forgot this is the link to the mugen. noticed that i was a bit more expensive than here in Holland but still...

    coolermaster has more cooling value than the mugen 2 rev b....actually...more value than any other on that list...and it did a good job of keeping an i7 cooled pretty nice...
    should have no problems with my 5600+...

    is the coolermaster hyper 212 better than the ones I posted on my 1st post?

    scythe kabuto seems real nice...33 euro,supports both am2 and am3.

    what do you think?

    The Kabuto is very good and any Scythe unit will give quiet performance due to Scythe's high quality fans.
    The CM Hyper 212+ is an excellent cooler but the fan is loud. I would buy it and put a Scythe fan on it the best of both worlds.Great cooling and quiet.
