I just finished building my first computer. Before doing this I had a Mac Mini, which was extremely quiet. I know I am being picky, but the stock fan for my i3 is bugging me already. There are a lot of replacement options, so I was hoping someone with more experience could give me some recommendations.

I am no poweruser by any means, so for me inexpensive and quiet are most important.

I have this case http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B001H0BA24, which doesn't leave much room (the stock fan has maybe 1/8" between it and the power supply).

What fan and heatsink replacement would be best for my needs? Or as another possibility, is there a way to quiet down my stock fan?

Best solution
