And are there ways to control the fanspeeds?

Hi, the TC part of the name is "Temperature Control." That is there is a thermistor, likely jammed in the heatsink fins, that controls the fans speed.
SPCR review here
I would guess it will be pretty quiet unless you are running a high power CPU. I guess a fanmate, or the like, could be used to shift the fan speed down, at the expense of higher temperature. What CPU are you hoping to cool with it?
Regards, Seb

Im hoping to make something like this:

Motherboard: Asus P5QL Intel P43 ATX DDR2
CPU: Intel pentium Dual core E5300 FSB800 2.6 GHz box
Cooler Arctic super silent 4 ultra TC S478
RAM: Kingston Value RAM DDRII 2 GB PC667 (*2)
Harddisk: Seagate Barracuda ES..2 500GB Sata 32MB 7200RPM
Graphics: ASUS GeForce PCI-E 9600 GT Silencer 512 MB 2*dvi
DVD/CR_ROM: Samsung WriteMaster SH-S223F
Casing: Anten P182
PSU: NorthQ NQ-4350-ELS Pacific II 500W Fanless 80+

But my options are limited to this vendors products since i dont have much experience myself:

I assumption it will be appealing quiet unless you are active a top ability CPU. I assumption a fanmate, or the like, could be acclimated to about-face the fan acceleration down, at the amount of college temperature...

I have direct experience of these; but that goes back over four years ago to a Pentium 4 socket 478 system that I had. And that's the point - the Arctic super silent 4 ultra TC S478 - as its name suggests is not suitable for a socket 775 motherboard/CPU combination.

The modern day equivalent, I guess, would be the Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro which is suitable for socket 775. As to quietness, the limitation is the 92mm fan but as it is a PWM device it will turn over at fairly low revs at idle but will speed up when the system is under load to a maximum of around 2500 rpm.
