I have this one on my t-bred:

I like the adjustable fan and its pretty cheap. $15 shipped right now from Newegg.

As far as the subwoofer output.. is this for listening to music or for movies or what? If you want a dedicated subwoofer output, you'll probably want a 6 channel (or 5.1) soundcard.

That's a beauty! I think I'll buy it actually. I have an older Cooler Master installed right now, but I broke off some blades and glued them back on but it's loud because it's out of balance. I also have a Thermalright SK-6 with a YS-Tech 8000RPM fan, but I can't stand it so I took it off.

My friend has that one on his computer and its really nice and a good price too.

If you want a quiet HSF, stay away from Thermaltake. Their HSF's are some of the nosier ones, but they cool really well. If you want good cooling, your going to have to sacrifice for the sound. You don't want one too quiet either, or else its not moving enough air around your CPU. Your just going to have to compromise between sound and cooling. But I do love my Thermaltake Volcano 7+ :D

I'm a big fan of Swiftech products. I'm eyeing their QPower case for my next system.

Anyway, their Heatsinks are good and you can mount your choice of fan on them. I would say Swiftech HS + Vantec 80mm Stealth fan. Quiet and powerful.

If you can afford that, Thermalright also makes some good stuff. Just remember, copper is your friend.

OK, forget it. I'm just gonna get a new 60mm fan for my SK-6 and slap that back on.

Yeah, you should get a 5.1 card. www.newegg.com has some good 5.1 sound card deals.

i think you'd be pleasently surprised by how quiet going to an 80mm HSF fan would make your computer...

newegg sells this absolutely excellent cooler for $7

http://www.newegg.com/app/viewproduct.a ... =5R238B1H3


I have purchased 3 and I know others who have purchased double digits.. they're an absolute steal at that price and work comparativly as good as name brand coolers costing $30-$40
