Any recommendations for a silent CPU Fan?

Running an Asus MB with an AMD XP 2400 processor, but the cpu fan is very noisy, looking to replace it.

Any advice?


Cheers!

Some good quiet fans there. look for a fan with the noise rating below 27.85 dB(A) for a quiet one.

Remember though, if you want very good cooling this means the fan spinning faster therefore more noise !!!

Remember when removing heatsink/fan from processor be very carefull. Motherboard can easily be damaged, i know, i have done it. It was a costly accident - £70 for a new board !!!
