Default Best and Quietest Case Fan?

I currently have 2 red LED case fans, a PCI slot system blower, the PSU fans, and of course the CPU fan. I'm wanting to replace the 2 red LED case fans with some quieter fans. I'm thinking I can make my system a lot quieter, so does anyone have any ideas on some super-quiet LED fans? I'd like to keep the LED lights because I like how it looks, but I guess it's not mandatory. BTW, the temp inside my case i think is pretty much normally at 28 degrees C, so i dont think theres much of a cooling issue here lol. Any suggestions are welcome! Thanks

because that'll make the fans louder. oh by the way, what size do they need to be?


i found the fan you need. it isn't led but that's not big deal becasue you can just throw in some cold cathododes. you need the vantec stealth series fan.

never mind...get these...EXTREEMLY silent! http://www.newegg.com/app/viewProduc...999-071&depa=0


http://www.newegg.com/app/ViewProduc...roperty&DEPA=0 you can also look through these. they aren't as quiet as the ones mentioned above but they put out a bit more air...and they are led. i think you should go with the ones at top though because i think you can sacrafice a few degrees for the sound with you system temps.

oh ok- so you think the Cooler Master fans are much better than the Vantec fans? the Vantecs are more expensive everywhere, so that seems odd
