I recently built a new audio + light gaming system (with the help of you guys here at toms Brilliant stuff )
Anyways to the point. NO OC'ing. And The system was meant to be as quiet as my LIMITED student budget allows.
The specs are in my sig.
The case removes alot of the noise. Case fans, gfx fan and PSU fan were all designed with acoustics in mind and is nearly inaudible. The only problem is the stock CPU cooler fan. It's louder than I would like (By quite a bit). I've tried lowering the fan speed but it's already at its lowest.
Can anyone suggest any budget based coolers? (not looking for performance - only acoustics) btw I'm from South Africa so no newegg. Be gentle :>
I was thinking:
Zalman CNPS stuff
Bang for buck? (In terms of acoustics) and a cpu compatible checkup (dunno what works with wat)
Thanks soest, I'd just like to know, Zalman prides themselves on "quiet computing"
Would a Zalman cooler, say the CNPS 7000c Do a better job of silencing than the coolermaster at roundabout the same price?
