I'm going to be moving into a new case soon so I thought I'd take the opportunity to replace the stock nForce4 chipset HSF currently on my Chaintech VNF4 board (it's louder than I prefer) and maybe replace the stock AMD HSF on my A64 3000+ running at 2.35Ghz and 1.6v (old Winchester needs a lot of volts to get anywhere) although I already find the AMD cooler to be a relatively quiet and a decent performer. I like quiet systems so low noise is a must. Not looking to spend a lot on these. I just need as close to silent operation as possible and good (doesn't need to be the best) performance.
Can I get a chipset cooler for around $20 and a CPU cooler for around $30 or so which meets my requirements?
What would you recommend?
Btw since I'm looking for low noise is a passive chipset cooler an option? Keep in mind that I overclock and my HTT is currently running around 265 which I understand makes the chipset run hotter.
TIA for your suggestions
