Fan Upgrade for Zalman CNPS10X Performa

Hello!

I'm looking for a fan to replace the stock one that came on my Zalman CNPS10X Performa cooler. It runs on 1500 RPM when idling and is rather loud for me. It idles at about 36-40C with a 27 C ambient temperature. I would prefer a fan with PWM.

Case: Antec P280
CPU: Intel i5 2500K OC'ed to 4.2 GHz
GPU: XFX HD6870 ZHFC

I also have a COUGAR CF-V12H as an intake fan and an Antec Tri-Cool as a "middle fan". Should I try the Cougar fan on my heatsink?

2 things
1. http://www.zalman.com/eng/product/Product_Read.asp?idx=... is this the right one?
2. if it is, it specifies the fan runs from 900-1350RPM


Correct. You were looking at the RPM with their resistor connected. Without it it runs up to 2000 RPM.

"900 ~ 1,350 ± 10% (RC24P Connected), 900 ~ 2,000 ± 10% (RC24P Not Connected)"

I'll take a Sack Meal 1 and a Crave Box to go.
