Well, There are a lot of high CFM, low noise fans, but they aren't cheap.

If you want good air flow AND low noise your gonna have to pay.

What size are these fans?

80mm, 120mm?

120mm i think, how much are these fans. Currently my system is about 36 degree and cpu 31 degree if that helps with anything. I'm also thinking of overclocking but i'm not sure if it ruins warrantry. thanks for helping

Its pretty hard to fry a cpu when overclocking, so long as you take it slow and keep temps well below 75C.

This is a pretty good deal for 45 CFM Fans.

Newegg.com - COOLER MASTER R4-S2S-124K-GP 120mm Case Fan - Case Fans

But if you want alot higher CFM fans here are some.

S Flex are also good as well as SilenX, but more expensive.

What site can you order from?

All you have to do is look for those fans I linked from where ever you can order from.

But even if you can't find those exact ones, the only requirements for your situation are.

120MM
DBA Below 30 (or less than 25 depending how on low you want the noise)
CFM above 45

And make sure they connect by 4 pin molex connector unless you have open 2 pin connectors on your motherboard.

Everyone has different definitions of quite, so use read this to help you get a better idea.

To me, anything under 50 DBA doesn't bother me, in fact I once had a 70 DBA fan that I slept through every night.
