    I'd say a zalman ZM-NB47J is a good performer and quiet too. If you want the annoyance of a fan, i'd say the vantec iceberg. Can't be bothered finding links, google them ;)

    Any reason why you don't want the zalman? With some arctic silver, it will be more than adequate chipset cooling, even at 200+ fsb with enough case ventilation. Those little fans are so whiny...

    EDIT: heres the link ->

    right now i am at 333fsb and the stock chipset cooler is a lot like that, i want something low to the board. right now sound is not much of a problem becase i have a volcano !! funning at full speed all the time. and with the case that it i in i can hardly hear it. i just want something small and but works well and looks good and maybe something that i can pur come of these micro leds in it that i got from school

    Umm, I'm el cheapo...

    I used some double sided heatsink tape (from a ram cooler set) to glue my vid card fan onto the stock heatsink on my MB chipset after I upgraded the video card cooler.
