Looking for Powerful but (relatively) quiet Fan/heatsink combo

Ello,

I am currently using a Cooler Master 212 (single fan pulling air) Hyper Evo, it's a good heatsink not amazing but it can be fairly loud under load. Looking to upgrade, I've considered a Noctua or something along those lines but I figured I weigh in here for some advice. Some other facts, my case is a Cooler Master HAF 932, the case has a tendency to collect a lot of dust over time but I try to keep up with it as best as possible, also the CPU socket is an LGA1555 (Core i5 3570k)

Thanks in advance for any advice. budget Price range is anywhere from 40-100$ I'd say.

Thanks! :)  God some temp specs? I OC to 4.2Ghz (not any higher right now)

Also hows the clearance on from the ram you think? I had to move my fan up a bit to make room for the ram on my mobo

Im using the same mono and ram so I wouldn't imagine it should be a problem, what about temp ratings?

Nice, I actually ended just getting some Cougar fans, overall I have about 3-4 drop in Idle temps, 2-3 underload. Cougar HFs in Push/Pull might get some for the case as well, they are super quiet.
