What's a good quiet cpu fan to get for an MS-6378 motherboard with a 1.3gig athlon in it. Getting it on my grandparents computer, there cpu fan is quite loud. All they use it for is basically internet, email, and solitare. Nothing that would make the computer get too warm. The case has a couple fans to pull air through, and theres only one cd drive and hard drive and an 8mb g-card, so really not much heat coming from anything else.
I can recommend a Zalman copper flower cooler. I have it on my Celeron 1.2 and it doesn't need any extra cooler except a very quiet Papst case fan to suck away the warm air. I also have a Radeon 9000 in combination with Zalman's small heat pipe heatsink and it doesn't get really warm.
When somebody enters my room they all think my computer is not on while it's actually almost never off
Here's a good one for nice and cheap...
