    I use a Thermaltake Spark 7 for my cpu. This can be very noisey but great for overclocking. Also lets you control the fan speed.

    CoolerMaster has some good case fans.

    Check out newegg.com for fans. They have great prices and sometimes shipping is free. Usually get the stuff in 2 days.

    no offense, but thermaltake is crap :hs:

    the zalman will cool better, and won't drive you nuts with the noise

    Mine is 39 C when playing games. I'd say it works pretty good. Oh, and I've got headphones on most of the time so I don't hear the noise. But they are loud as shit.

    I've got a couple friends who only use thermaltake and they love them. They also have a fan speed adjuster. So, if you aren't overclocking at have the dial set to normal then it's not loud.

    I have a Zalman Flower. With a 120mm fan blowing on it. At 100% load my temp never goes higher than 107 degrees F. I have an Athlon XP 2400+

    Water if you got the bucks, but the sp94 and an enermax thermally controlled 92mm fan are a very close second.
