NOTHIING is as silent as a zalman cooler, and I have owned over 35 coolers and counting...Used a CNPS 9500 copper edition for many many years on a core 2 quad, also briefly used a CNPS 9900 and it was even better/quieter. A recommendation for a nice super solid and also quite affordable/quiet is a corsair CX430 watt, have used over 20 of these PSU's in builds for friends and family, never a problem and some have been running 24/7 for years without even a dusting.

I did look into it but it requires a backplate for LGA775 mounting frown.gif which is not an option

You didn't mention the push pin mount in OP... This is one of the better push pin mounted coolers that are low and quiet, the stock fan is pretty loud though(shouldn't get to full RPM though, comes with a PWM fan so only speeds up when needed).

After reading user reviews all over the next i decided not to got for Scythe as many people reports fans failing after a while. If this was for me i wouldn't care but as i'm doing for someone else i can't let such thing to happen i don't want to take the risk.

Akasa venom nano seems to have great cooling power compared to TX3 but it's a bit louder.

From all i've read as seen Cooler Master Hyper TX3 Evo seems to be current best choice.

What do you guys think?

i think you should get the cheapest 92mm Fan based Tower cooler(Scythe katana 4, Xigmatek Loki, Hyper TX3, etc), since they all perform similarly and get a quality 92mm PWM Fan for it like the Noiseblocker PE-P.

I still think get a Scythe Shuriken and put a Gentle Typhoon AP-14 or Noctua P12 PWM on it... it'll be quieter than any 92mm cooler, will also cool the motherboard components too and will be reliable (plus you know it fits cos you have a photo!)

I think the prices are near enough the same too.
