There are heatsinks made for low noise computing, for overclocking, and then there are those built at an affordable price point which try to do both. The Vantec Mach 1 heatsink is such a heatsink; it's inexpensive and includes a sliding fan speed controller which adjusts the fan from 2800-to-3800RPM.

The Vantec Mach 1 heatsink is compatible with sockets 478/754/939/940 thanks to a retention frame that accomodates both AMD Athlon64 and Intel Pentium 4 heatsink mounting spaces. A metal PCB-stiffener plate for K8 applications, thermal paste, and printed instructions round out the package contents.

The 515 gram Vantec MP4-7015-FC Mach 1 heatsink utilizes a 70mm fan that generates anywhere between 48-57 dBA noise, depending on the manually set fan speed. This level of control allows the user to determine the level of performance they want from the heatsink, so long as one is willing to reach around to the rear of the PC and adjust the sliding potentiometer each time.
