I need some really silent 120mm fans. I would like them to move abour 35-45cfm of air, and be almost dead silent.

I have this one in mind...

I was also thinking a couple of these for exhaust.

I think i will get that nexus one for the front intake, and 2 of the arctic cooling ones for exhaust... Anyone want 2 of the arctic cooling ones? Me and my friend are buying 2 each, and if i buy 2 more, then they are like $7.50.

I'd try one of these Thermaltake ones.

They are nice because you can run them really slow for normal use and they should be pretty silent. If you want to try to bench the PC just turn them up to 100% and they'll be able to pull your shirt through your pc. :)

Antec Tricool's on LOW...

Or...most quality fans at 5v. I use Panaflo's becuase they push a LOT of air, even at 5v. I use a Sunbeam Rheobus and can't hear a thing with a system that has 5 120MM fans in it. (3 Tricools, 2 Panaflos) And as I harp on around here, I spent a lot of time and money trying to find something cool and quiet! ;)

I already have 3 antec tri-cools on low.. They are horrible, vibrate like mad. Maybe because they are the sleeve bearing version, and not the DBB...

Yuck. Mine are silent...I've heard arguments against the DBB too, so I'm not sure. I see you have the same case as mine...wow...that's just really wierd. I'm not sure if mine are the sleeve or not, but they should be the same as yours. That's crazy that they vibrate so horribly.

Well...either a bad batch or I'm deaf. :)

I think it might be a bad batch... with my new P180B one of the fans it came with was doa.
