First of all, I wouldn't worry about a 45c temp, that's well within acceptable ranges.

The Volcano 7+ is all aluminum if I remember...the Volcano 11 or 12 is all copper, and will make a big difference. Both the 11 and 12 have speed-controlled fans which can easily be used to lower the noise level of your system while keeping temperatures at current levels or lower.

Thermaltake also makes a new Silent Boost for the K7 family, also all copper, which will offer better cooling than the stock sink.

Unless you plan to overclock this system, I wouldn't really worry about upgrading the sink/fan.
