Default Thin fans

Hello!
Does anybody know where I can find some thin case fans? My case has 2 of them but they are so incredibly loud I can't take it anymore! They are not the "standard" 25mm size but thinner. No luck finding anything like that so far.

Are the stealth fans thinner? Only thinner fans will fit or my case will not close.

check the dBA (decibels) rating on the fans you buy, 35 or more is kinda loud, under 25 is pretty quiet. also, teh thicker your fans, the less rpms the need to push teh same amount of air (airflow). your thin ones are proly too speedy and too noisy.
does ur case require the thinner design? if not, buy some regular 80*80*25 with a lower dba rating

The front ones need to be thinner otherwise the front part of the case won't close. I already upgraded all my other case fans to 21 dBa which is very nice. Do you guys know where to buy those thinner ones though?
