Although I have no idea what sone are compared to DBA, so i can't tell you if its going to be real loud or not.
Its the best one I can find.
Remember though, as me and warriorscot have said, its not worth investing into a cooler namly if it won't work on future upgrades, better off investing in new hardware. Also the noise could very well be coming from the PSU fan or the case fans, and considering the temps are that low you probably have lots of case fans running.

P.S. Yes that is a good burner, although you can get up to 20x burning. But good nun the less

do you actually trust those small heatsink kind? i would fear the fan to quit and over heat rapidly. also there is 3 VERY quiet fans in my psu. around 1000rpm maybe less. 80mm. as for case fan i have 1 80mm thats choking at the front of the case, i know its making alot of noise but the heatsink is just as loud. it has a 70mm

I would say thats a normal heatsink, but http://www.newegg.co...SubCategory=574 onf od the freezer range would be better or something along the lines of http://www.newegg.co...N82E16835118019 or one of the cheaper versions.

Warriorscot, I agree that Zalmon's are a great CPU fan, one problem is that he is a socket 478 and every Zalmon fan under that socket is junk. Thermaltech for that matter as well.
Also that fan that you listed won't work as its not the appropriate socket.

As for that fan, it was one of the best that I could find, isn't great but still respectable.

Whatever you do don't get this fan

http://www.newegg.co...N82E16835185114 The freezer is the best cooler i know of for that socket in a decent price range, thermalright make some nice ones for that socket but they arent cheap.

Since it was in sones I wasn't sure. So I googled it.
Take a look at this graph
However I still recommend this one over the one warriorscot mentioned, it moves about 30% more air, it's cheaper (though not significatly but will cover shipping and tax), and has speed variables. When its running full its 50% louder but when its running on low its 50% quieter. Your choice though.

According to this site, 2 sones=50dBA. Making the fan warriorscot mentioned at 25dBA and the one I said range from about 20-35dBA.

The problem with heatsinks is the amount of air they push isnt always the same as how much they cools what i read said the one you suggested didnt cool as well as the other freezers, which makes sense and even on newegg the freezer has better reviews and for a long time it was THE cooler to get on a budget for any socket even now its still one to be reccomended as one of the best around.

The 1sone thing is tricky it can be as much as 40db or as little as 20-25 i think 20-25 sounds more like the real number and inside a case thats not too bad.

does this one stay at one speed or is it controllable? my board will not change the speed of the fan, atleast it never has. the current fan is always at 3305rpm(slight changes)
