What's the best heat sink/fan for Pentium III (socket version)

    My PC Power and Cooling fan for Pentium III (socket 478???)
    is getting noisy after about 3-4 years. Maybe less. I vaguely remember
    replacing it once.

    What's the best quiet fan for a socketed PIII?

    Is there a super quiet super reliable 80mm fan with a sink that would last
    another 3-4 years?
    The fan I have is about 50mm I think and seems to spin rather quickly.

    I assume there are no liquid cooling kits for PIII and I'd rather not go
    thru the trouble and
    expense of installing one. ($200 minimum? I'd rather stay under $40-50).

    Thank you.
