I can't stand my old heat sink fan anymore because it's way too loud. I want a good cooling solution that isn't too loud but still can cool a fast processor. I have an Athlon XP 2000 right now. I've been looking at those really cool Zalman heat sinks as a possible option. I'm not sure if it will fit though because I've got a pretty small case. Also I don't know if it will fit on my mother board which is an Asus a7n8x deluxe. Does anyone know if those huge Zalmans fit on that board? Any suggestions are appreciated

Put an 80mm case fan on there with an adapter.

60mm to 80mm:

Or this one:

Or one of these. They aren't so tall:

Here's an example of the difference they can make (Copy and paste the link if it doesn't work):

Oh, and if you do go to the stock heatsink, lap it first. It'll cool alot better. I lap all my heatsinks. It drops the temps about 5C.

I just assembled a machine with an XP2000 and a Coolermaster DP5-7JD1B CPU fan.
Specifications are 22.2CFM and 24.2dB. Supports up to 2200 Palomino and 2600 Thoroughbread.
The thing is so quiet that I kept taking a look to it afraid that it was not spinning. At $15 at Newegg it comes as a real bargain.

I have a Volcano 6Cu+ and an Antec on other machines and they are considerably louder.

use a thermaltake volcano 11+, and use the autofan speed..you just need to connect the thermal sensor to the cpu...and take off the grill to get less noisy...
