I have some really quiet case fans too. I forget what I bought but i have a 120mm in the front, an 80mm on the side and an 80mm in the back.

My noise now comes from the 2 80mm's that I put on the back of my entertainment center to help with the heat buildup inside it. But once a movie is playing, u don't hear those.

I get min 6 Celsius and max about 30 under load and it puts no strain on the board as far as I know

Actually it's pretty light and it lowered my temps down 8c to 10c.

Yours is huge for a small motherboard?

That's mine.

I'm using this one:



Ugly, but does the job flawlessly. Better quality than OEM heatsinks, cools better and better to clean up as it collects dust much slower.

Looks like yours is bigger than mine.

I mean the heatsink.
