Hmmm, sorry to get in so late, I just noticed this thread. If peace and quiet mean anything to you take a good look at the Alpha 8045. A little pricier than the SK-6, but much less obnoxious. I have an Athlon XP 1800+ with the Alpha and a Sunon 40 cfm 80 mm fan and it makes no more noise than a case fan. The Alpha tests out very close to the Swiftech, but is less expensive. 80mm fans are available up to 80 cfm if you are overclocking. My Sunon is only turning 3000 rpm as compared to the 7000-8000 rpm fans commononly used on 60 mm heatsinks. One caveat, make sure it will fit on your motherboard. Alpha has a compatability page at:
It looks like your mobo will be o.k.
