I am trying to lower my current fan noise. Also was adding quiet running noctua 120mm side intake fan and 92mm fan. But needed to figure out what i could do about the stock cpu cooler fan to replace it with a quiet but almost/equally as effective cooler. I wasnt gonna add a water cooler since the case is kinda small for it. Open to any suggestions, build as follows.

1 fan model

Superior Cooling Perfomance

An interchangeable 120 mm PWM fan in combination with 4 direct touch heatpipes and a 48-fin heatsink enable the Freezer A30 to deliver outstanding cooling performance and improve heat dissipation from the CPU. According to the test results from Hardware Secrets, its superior cooling performance surpassed the stock cooler and similar models by up to 34 degrees.

Hi, and welcome to Bleeping Computer! If you are looking for a cooler that is quiet and can easily cool the FX8350 without increasing the fan speed, then the Noctua NH-U14S would be a solid choice, although if you are on a budget then the Coolermaster Hyper 212 EVO is well regarded by the enthusiast community for it's excellent price to performance ratio.

I've never liked stock coolers, there are several aftermarket coolers you can choose from.  Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO, ARCTIC Freezer A30, or Enermax ETS-T40-TB.  These are large 120mm coolers, so make sure you have plenty of room before buying.  I use an aftermarket cooler with my FX processor mostly for noise reduction.
