Default quiet chipset fan

i was gettin all the air out of my watercooling today and i noticed that my chipset fan is quite a bit louder than when i first got it so i want to buy a new quiet one, any suggestions? oh and it has to be pretty flat since it goes slightly under my vid card

removed the chipset fan and put some AS5 or ASC on it. That will help temps a lot.

I saw this thing where people take an old OEM hsf and use it for their chipset. They take off the fan and then cut off part the heatsink. It was actually working a lot better then the stock one. I will see if I can find a link.
