Best Fan to go with a heatsink that supports 80mm / 92mm fan

I have a thermalright 948U heatsink, which currently has an 80mm Panaflo L attached to it. My cpu temps are at 60-65C, but still runs stable. I am wondering if there are new fans in the market that may be better performing but are still very quiet. What do you guys suggest? Do you recommend 92mm or ...

Any Antec case owners have a spare slot cover?

I need a slot cover.. the screwless ones that slit into the back that cover up the unused PCI slots.

Anyone have a spare one? I will pay for shipping if you have a spare one. Let me know please.

Can't decide which 6600GT (AGP) to get. Help!

I can't decide between these three models. The small price difference between them does not matter to me.

I want a quality video card that performs well to go into my silent system.

EDIT: This is for AGP

Safe to use Foam under Harddrive?

Is it safe to rest a Harddrive directly on a flat area of foam? So pretty much everything on the bottom of the hardrive (motor, pcb) is lying on top of the foam.

Is there any danger to this? Overheating or small foam particles getting on the pcb etc?

I honestly think that if your system has a WD 8mb cache drive then i would suggest you get louder pleasantly sounding fans to drown out the noise of the horrible whine. Because if you quiet everything else and still have the WD 8mb cache harddrives then your computer will just produce a loud anoying...
