Question Silent Cooling

This is my first so I would like to say whats up to everyone. I hope I can find some good recommendatons. Im looking to purchase some silent computer fans. Water cooling is out of my budget since I am looking to replace fans in 25 computers. Does know of a good fan for an AMD Processor that is silent. With all these coputers in my office the noise is driving me nuts. Im looking for something tha is resonably priced as well.

At 14 dB, the SilenX is the quietest fan I have ever used, you should be able to add these to your existing Heatsinks and case fan ‘holes’. Keep an eye on the temps for a while though, they are quiet, but don’t move a hell of a lot of air either.

You can get them here.
