As stated in the title, I need a new, quiet and cheap heatsink for my processor since the standard one is incredibly loud. I got this computer from a friend since he didn't use it anymore and if anyone sees anything wrong with it, please notify me, thanks.

This is the stock heatsink/fan provided by Intel. I've built so many, I'd never forget the design heh.


That being said, you an remove the fan. It will come off. Noise problem solved, just double check you have enough airflow to prevent long term damage.

What do you mean by tiny?  The smaller they are .. the louder.  Can we have more information about the case?  After market good coolers and cheap ... do not necessarily work in the same sentence.
