My cpu heat sink and fan have an annoying whirring noise at pretty much any power setting. What are some good quiet cpu coolers?

I dunno about the evo, but my 212+ is pretty quiet... that is, it's quiet after I control the fan with SpeedFan... left to its own devices at 100% or w/e it was very loud. I've got it set to go down to 25% speed and increase if the core temp reaches 42 degrees.

It's not silent, but it's not loud or annoying.

Not very quiet. The CM Xtra Flo fan runs up to 2200RPM IIRC.
