My PC's not too loud or hot (running between 19 celsius idle and max at 50 celsius). But it's noise is audible. I'm wondering what quiet options are there compared with the stock cooler (in the AMD 1045T). It's spinning around 1400 rpm on idle.

The Cooler master 212 is what everyone says is a good budget cooler. Are they quiet compared to stock? Any other ideas? No plan on OC and I might play some TF2 on it later. That's it though.

Coolermaster Hyper 212 Evo.....it'll be quiet since the fan wont need to spin up all that much. If your case has the room for it, she be a lil tall.

I used this Arctic Alpine Pro on a recent build - I was surprised at how quiet it was. Definitely bigger than stock and should cool better though I never confirmed since I didn't put in the stock cooler.

I managed to find my forum post where I have pictures comparing the Arctic to AMD's stock.

Hope this helps.
