1. I'm looking for the quietest, coolest one for not that much money. I might overclock, but I'm not sure. So it's not required. Am I looking for a fan that fits my CPU socket or Motherboard socket or both? My CPU is AM3, but my motherboard supports AM3/AM2+/AM2.
This is the case I have: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16811119137
2. I'm running at stock speed now.
Take a look at a few coolers and find a few that fit your budget. After that, write another post and ask other forum members what your best bet would be.
Just remember a few things:
-Check cooler dimensions (and make sure it has mounting parts for AMD boards)
-Fan size--> all things being equal, a bigger fan will probably be quieter because it spins slower to move the same amount of air
-Overclock--> if you do decide to overclock, a bigger cooler may be necessary (and be more expensive)
Do a Google search on heatsink reviews or cpu cooler reviews.
Have fun and ask if you have other questions
