i've decided i'm going to get them from Newegg.com definitely, but just not sure which ones to get. Either the Vantec or the Cooler Master

Cooler Master fans

Vantec fans

i calculated the totals, and the Vantec fans would only be $1.54 more than the Cooler Masters. So whatever you guys think (i'll wait a couple days before I buy them), is what I'll buy. thnx

I actually have 2 stealths, I can barly hear one of them at full blast over an old wd hd, and the cpu/vid fans. Max rpm I've seen was 2100, they don't move much air.
