Any PC pros out there that knows a good set a extremely quiet fans? I have an 800D with a couple cooler master fans. I don't really like hearing them. Was wondering if their are any quieter than those. I need 120's and 140's for this build. Throw some Www.NewEgg.Com links if possible! Thank you.

Why not keep the fans you have and/or buy regular fans and use a fan controller.

Noctua apparently makes really quiet fans if you can get past the horrid color scheme

i had a computer that put out medium noise.
i went into the bios and turned on some q-fan stuff (some motherboards have this)
and my fans went down from 1200rpm to sub600
airflow is still good enough for me, but if you want lots of airflow, you may consider noctua fans.

many people dont like their colors (i like them though) and they cost a lot but MAN they are quiet.

You may need to look at hydro bearing or nano flux bearing fans if you need it to be silent, Gelid fans are very good when it comes to rpm/noise ratio, although they are very expensive.

I also agree with the Gelid's and Noctua's, but for ultimate quietness paired with ultimate airflow, perhaps you should consider a small mod, to incorporate a 200mm Cooler Master MegaFlow, rather than the 120's or 140's. They're 19dBa @ 110CFM, which equals very quiet and heavy airflow. Here's a newegg link for example: http://bit.ly/xecXnW Other stores sell them too, such as xoxide, frozencpu, etc.

Some of the really fast Scythe one's are extremely quiet if you run them at lower speeds. They'll still have good CFM.

XIGMATEK eXTREME SILENT Series 140mm Case Fan

They also make 120 fans. These are really good fans. They emit very little noise are good looking too.
