Quietest AM3 Compatible Cooler for Under $50

Hi everyone,

I'm currently running a X4 955BE, at a moderate 3.5GHz on stock cooling. The cooling I'm getting is sufficient, but the high level of noise bothers me. It can get annoyingly loud during load, which gives me a headache at times.

So getting back to the question, I'm looking for a quiet cooler. Cooling performance dosen't really matter (as long as it keeps temps at OK levels), because I'm not looking to OC any further any time soon (maybe a bit but not a lot).

I'm looking for the quietest cooler I can get.

Any help appreciated.
