this is the one I got:

Newegg.com - Thermaltake A2018 120mm Blue LED Case Fan - Retail

I use the fan controller - pretty convenient actually. That white strip around the fan is ugly though and the LCD is really really bright.

I posted some pics in this thread:

Adding Fan to Cooler Master Case

Newegg.com - VANTEC SF12025L 120mm Case Fan - Retail

I have four of those, in the 80mm version in my lian li, and I have to say they are freaking quiet, and they move a good amount of air, perfect.

Newegg.com - COOLER MASTER R4-L2S-122B-GP 120mm 4 BLUE LED LED Case Fan - Retail

you get two fans in one, for $9.99

they both have blue LED's, and are only 19.3 dBA

I have personally used the Cooler Master and Thermaltake blue LED fans, and the cooler master is almost silent comparatively. That's with the Thermaltake turned all the way down.

*edit* 29 dBA is not what I'd call quiet (Vantec fan)

When choosing a fan though dont you also want good cfm flow?

Yate Loons... best combination of airflow, silence, and price.

120mm Fans

Whatever you're interested in, I personally would go with a medium.

the HR-03 Plus works well without having a very high CFM fan.

I don't think I'll gain much more efficiency (amount of heat transferred to the air, in Watts) out of it unless I get a fan that has a much higher CFM rating, but then there's the noise....

Basically, higher CFM fans generally make it more cooler, however, the higher the CFM gets, the lower the gradient of efficiency increase becomes.
