So i figured out an ivy bridge processor would run quite hot, and no matter how stupit this sounds, i realy like to know my CPU is cool :p 
Neither man i a fan of overclocking since im new to it... Maybe in the future
And, of course, i hate noise! Everything in my case, leave the GPU out, is about 20 dB, wich i like.

So, any surgestions on a not too powerfull silent cpu cooler ? :) 

Budget = 40- 70 $

Im running a black/blue color scheme, tho i would like something a bit lighter maybe? not white, but ive come to like noctua :)

Ivy Bridge does not run hot. It runs HOTTER than Sandy Bridge when doing a massive overclock.

Not too powerful silent cpu cooler? Have you tried the one that comes with it?

I read your post correctly the first time.

Where in the post does it say the stock cooler is too loud???

In fact you never stated you had a stock cooler at all.

Sorry we are not mind readers, just good text readers.

A silent fan is not going to cool your cpu.

The reason it's loud is because it's spinning fast.....spinning slow=hot

I don't know, I've never heard a peep out of my stock intel cooler and it's a joke. You should see it, it's comparable to the fan you used to get with a 200mmx.

I don't even see how you could hear the cpu fan over the gpu fan anyways.

Cooler Master Hyper 212 Plus or Evo are great and quiet. Much better than stock.
