Default Recommend me a good 120mm fan

I need a fan for my Big Typhoon heatsink. I would like a fan that is not louder than my Antec Nine Hundred Case fans. The fans on it are up to 30db each. I am going to be doing a good bit of overclocking, but definitely do not want anything over 30db(unless its just barely over that and well worth it).

Can someone recommend me a good 120mm fan that isn't over say 32db? I'll spend up to $25 on the fan.

You're a tool if you think your going to get such high cfm with low db. The one I linked is probably one of the best if not the best 120mm fan for the CPU.

90cfm, 18dba. You might need to use some special screws from a local hardware shop to mount it on that heatsink, but it's doable.

You're welcome.

Really? I never read the customer reviews. I've yet to have one die on me, and two of them I've been using for over a year.

Antec 761345-75024-0 120mm Blue LED Case Fan - Retail
Noise Level 25 / 28 / 30 dBA
Air Flow 39 / 56 / 79 CFM
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835209011

I have 5x120mm of SilentX in my wifes TJ09 case at full speed and guess what they are loud!!
I have 5x120mm of the Antec's and they have a fan controller built in low/med/high and on high there quieter then the SilentX fans and the Antecs are dual ball bearing. Plus with the SilentX on high and the Antec on high I would say the antecs feel like it push's more air.
