Windows 7: CPU fan that isnt too tall

CPU fan that isnt too tall

Hey guys, I'm looking for a new CPU fan that isn't too tall. I've looked at a few Cooler Master CPU fans and Zalman ones however I have no idea which one to get. Ideally I would like one that keeps my PC under 55 degrees at all times and one that you can change the speeds using software like SpeedFan.

What one should I get?

In what price range are you talking about? if you use a closed watercooling kit you wont have any issues with the height, I use a Corsair H80 with 1 Gentle Typhoon 1850 with a 5v resistor and that keeps my overclocked system at around 40c during games and 50-55c during 100% load. Noctuas latest cpu cooler (NH-U14S) beats most closed watercooling kits with lower noise, is noise a factor at all?

I got a email yesterday that had a new low profile cpu cooler that is made to clear memory with cooling plates, I'll see if I can find it.
