Hi, I've got the following parts in my rig:

 

AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition Deneb Quad-Core 3.4GHz Socket AM3 125W Processor HDZ965FBGMBOX

GIGABYTE GA-770T-USB3 AM3 AMD 770 USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard

 

 

Any recommended CPU cooling fans compatible with the above? My current fan is way too loud and has been for some time, even after I have practically no background processes and a complete dusting of the inside.

 

Any suggestions are much appreciated!

What sort of case do you have?  Some coolers won't fit in certain cases, so ideally we'd need to know how much space you have available.

It looks a decent sized case but as there is no concrete maximum CPU cooler height specified by Antec, I think it's best to err on the side of caution. I think it's most likely that because of it's "mini tower" size things like the Cooler Master Hyper 212 Evo will be too tall for the case.

Looking at items that are known to be fairly quiet, reasonably priced, and that should fit in the case, things like this would be worth considering:

Arctic Freezer 13
Arctic Freezer 7 Pro Rev. 2
Cooler Master Hyper TX3
Zalman CNPS-8900 Quiet

Post editor seems to be playing up so no links. They are all quite widely available (e.g. Amazon)
