    The stock cooler is 2.6 sone according to the first review that came up in google. I'm sure some review will have the dba values if you do some digging. What's your fx5900 like for noise? I wouldn't bother with an expensive cooling system. It sounds like you have some cash so maybe it's better you put the money towards an X800XL (£200ish) or similar graphics upgrade. Check out the HIS IceQ range products should satisfy your low noise requirements and give a very nice performance boost.

    The Freezer 64 doesn't work as well as the Venus 12 which is nowhere near as good as an XP-120. It's just OK.

    The Thermaltake watercooler looks very nice for an inexpensive watercooler. Well worth the cash.
