I've been thinking about upgrading a few things to sqeeze the last bit of power from my aging computer. Since i'm upgrading the CPU, i'd like to replace my TT Spark 7 with something quiet. It really is loud, even though i'm totally used to it (makes any game system seem like a whisper in comparison). Anyone know of any quiet, effective CPU coolers that would be under around 50$? Some say that they are quiet, but if someone could reccomend one from experience that'd be great. I don't mind the sound of rushing air, just the annoying hum some fans make. I would do water cooling but there's really no point in spending that much, and I probably wouldn't need it.
