I would recommend the Socket A ThermalTake SilentBoost. Good, solid cooler, being used with Arctic Silver 5. Temps are in the 40C range with my AXP at 2.2 ghz. Thermaltake Volcano series is also popular.

Silentboost' ">http://www.newegg.com/app/View...tion=35-106-037&depa=0 - runs quitely at 2400-2500rpm
Volcano 12' ">http://www.newegg.com/app/View...tion=35-106-035&depa=0 - loud when fan is at full speed.
Zalman 7000B' ">http://www.newegg.com/app/View...tion=35-118-113&depa=0

There are others, but these are by far the most popular.

The Thermaltake Pipe 101' ">http://www.thermaltake.com/coo...ol/pipe101/pipe101.htm along with a Thermaltake Silent Cat 90mm' ">http://www.thermaltake.com/coo...entCat9/SilentCat9.htm would also be a great choice, and almost completely silent.

A little more expensive of course, but you will benefit from the heatpipes on the Pipe 101.

maybe try a gigabite pcu21vg - pretty silent, good cooling. The TIM that comes with it is pretty ok (the only thing that it's too little, maybe for 3-4 applications). My Semp 2500+ runs at 2100MHZ (1750stock) at 39C idle and 46full (readings from the socket)
