    Which cpu cooler would you recommend, parameters are quality, reliability and quiet.
    I have an Asus P5W DH Del with an E6400 Core 2 Duo. It has the stock Intel cooler.
    I am not o/c at the moment (if I did it would be minimal).
    The cpu runs cool.
    However, this stock cooler is more noisy than I would like so I am considering this upgrade.
    Any advice/recommendations would be appreciated.
    Thanks

    If you just want it to be quieter, I would enable the smart fan feature; check your mb manual for how to enable / disable this feature.

    FWIW I use an asus VR cooler on a Pentium D 940 and it works very well. Quite as well.
