I heard that the Zalman7000Cu is very good and quiet. I'm not sure it's 7000Cu, I'll check, 1 moment

You'll definatly get better performance out of the Zalman one and it's as quiet as stock I believe.

If you want silence, the Zalman is the best choice and it's all copper so you'll get a performance gain as well. So yes, it will cool better at a noise level of just 27.5dB and that's at full blast.

I'm sure you've heard.. "the cooler the better".. so you'll probably get more stability than using your stock cooler..
