Default Which CPU Cooling Fan you would recommend I buy?

I am building y own PC desktop.
case; Thermaltak M9D
motherboard; GIGABYTE GA-EP 45T
CPU; Intel Core 2 Duo, 3.33 GHz , 775 socket
I want a CPU Cooler that cools well and that is very low dBA noise level.
Liquid or air cooler will do

For something like the 775 if you are looking into optimal noise reduction I personal would look at the ISGC-200. That is going to be air cooled. If you are just looking for a CPU cooler I would recommend not going for water unless you are cooling hard drives and graphics at the same time.

Why would you want to liquid cool your hard drives? That's a complete waste of money.

Liquid cooling on hard drives is not pointless. If he plans on doing a lot of video conversion, or he is going to have his h.d.d. operating at least 30 percent for more than 1/2 the time, then he might need liquid cooling. But if he is going to not be using his drives "hard core" than your right liquid cooling is a waste

Hard drives are not like silicon chips. Excessively cooled drives tend to fail sooner than hot-running drives.
