    Help me choose a Heatsink fan

    I have decided that the current setup is not quite good enough and I got a little money this week and have decided on one of these lovely Heatsinks:
    http://www.thecoolingshop.com/produc...roducts_id/758

    Now my question is, what is the best 92mm fan that strikes the right balance between good cooling and noise(The rest of my case is pretty quiet so would appreciate no vacuum cleaner fans)
    Any thoughts?

    I would recommend a Zalaman Fan or a YS-TECH fan, the roughly 50CFM ones.

    Got a noiseblocker S3 in my shuttle, nothing but good things to say about them tbh, nice and quiet and better temps than with the old fan

    Just found this thread through google, is the noiseblocker also recommended for a case fan? It will be in a dell so only fan in the case and it draws heat off the cpu heatsink (P4 2.26) through a 'hood'

    I've bought this for use with my XP-90, it seems to have a decent airflow for the noise level: http://scan.co.uk/Products/ProductIn...ProductID=1767

    Alex, not interested in a cpu fan. Its a case fan i want which is attached to the case drawing heat off the heatsink through a hood.

    The coolermaster seems quite loud in comparison to others even if it does have a large cfm rating. Also scan charge a bomb on postage
