Q8200 aftermarket cooling question

  1. I have just built a new system for a friend as follows,
    Case - Silverstone SG01
    RAM - 6 gig Samsung 800
    Hard Drive - 500gig Seagate
    CPU - Intel Q8200
    PSU - Coolmaster 600W

    He was hoping to have it a little quieter, i told him that i could install a new cooler on the CPU and that would make a difference.

    I found a cooler that seemed ok and not too pricey, but i cant find any information on how much noise the standard fan with the CPU actually makes.

    I can find many different figures on all sorts of new cooling systems but cant find out anything about the one it will be replacing. Could anyone advise me how much quieter the Zalman CNPS9500LED wil be than the standard fan

    The lower the sound db rating, the lower the fan noise
