I need an efficient and *quiet* air cooler

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I've nearly gathered all the parts for the PC I'm building for my dad (its a surprise build to replace his 8 year old PC). I'm just left with one part. CPU cooling.

The processor is a Phenom II X3 720 Black Edition. Hopefully it will unlock to 4 cores. It won't be on the bleeding OC edge but I will OC it a bit to give it some more "snap". Oh yeah the case is a HAF 912.

So I'm looking for an efficient and quiet air cooler. Budget is less than a XSPC Rasa 240 loop but more than a CM Hyper 212+. The only thing I really want is PWM control of the fans so I can set a custom fan profile for cooling.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

The Thermalright Silver Arrow delivers excellent performance at very low noise levels...

+1 for the silver arrow.
This also performs about the same:

edit: apparently it comes with the rheosmart 6 too as a free gift! Not too shabby. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811995075
