Default Need new fans

My Comp is extremely loud (i have 3 80mm fans taht came with my case and the Scythe ninja in quiet mode (so it has no fan on it, temps are around 55C under Prime95's torture test and around 45C idle if not lower)).

I'm lookin for some very quiet fans and need some suggestions (just for my case so 80mm). LEDs - no green or purple or multi-color. either red, blue, or none. I'm guessin lower dBA is quieter but that i'm not sure. please help

I think i'm goin to get two of these:

and two of these:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16835200002

they're the same fans just one has white LEDs and the other red LEDs. They have 32CFM airflow and a 25 dBA noise level. Is that pretty good?
