Need suggestions for case fans
 
Hey guys
My case is the Cooler Master 690 and cam accomadate upto 8 fans
The 3 stock fans that the cae came with have an rpm of 1200 and dBA of 21.

The side of my case can have 2X140 cans and so can to top for exhaust.

So far the fans i have are 2 exhaust (top,back) and one side 120 fans.

Im debating which fans i should get...120 or 140 fans.
These are the ones ive found so far so i need to know which ones i should get.
Im willing to buy upto 4 more fans.

Here are the ones ive found so far that look pretty good and some have been suggested my people over here:

1- Newegg.com - Thermaltake A2329 120mm Case Fan - Retail
2- Newegg.com - APEVIA CF12S 120mm Case Fan - Retail
3- Newegg.com - Antec 75003 120mm Case Fan - Retail
4 - Newegg.com - AeroCool SilverLightning140mm 140mm White LED Case Fan - Retail (suggested by b1)

Since ill be having so many fans, i wanna make sure theyre not that loud.
Which one will give me the best airflow with the lowest or avg sound?

Well whenever possible go with the largest fan that you can fit in that location. The bigger the fan, the more air it can move at the same decibal level.

If you have the money, pay more for quiet. My computers have excellent airflow, but now they sound like small power saws.

The larger fans are quieter.

I would suggest something like this:

Cooler Master Silent Fan SI1 (4 Pack) - Sleeved Products Model: R4-S2S-124AK-GP [R4-S2S-124AK-GP] : Performance-PCs.com, ... sleeve it and they will come

I thought it was $20 for one fan, but it's a 4-pack....and that's quite a deal there. Those are really quiet.

They're quiet yes, but they're only 40 cfm which is pretty low for a 120mm. I wonder if they have a 4 pack with 1600rpm models.

yeah, those fans look weak to me.
I just ended up getting 2 of these...
Newegg.com - Thermaltake A2329 120mm Case Fan - Retail
and some other thermaltake fan that had 79cfm,2000rpm with 21dBA.
Thanks for all your help though

Shipping to my zip code adds another $10....so that comes out to 7.50 each...not bad of a deal
