www.newegg.com

Bigger fans usually = less noise,

60mm is gonna be noisy if it has efficient airflow.

if you want quiet - run a 120mm fan slowly (only is you have facilities to house it).

You could always use a 60mm to 80mm fan adapter and use an 80mm fan in place of the 60mm. This is what I'm doing and I get much more cooling efficiency than with a 60mm, plus it runs much quieter than any 60mm that would push as close to as much as an 80mm would.

I would go 120mm if I can
they are pretty quiet, yet they have really good airflow

Cooler Master and Thernaltake have pretty good fans

I believe it's 92mm not 90mm.
