Default quiet fans

hi all i just moved my case up higher and closer for better air flow and i need some better fans i've decided.
i need two 120mm, one either 80 or 92mm, and possibly one pci slot blower.
and they need to be as quiet as possible, so it doesn't sound like i have a freight train next to me here. any ideas?
thanks!

2 x 120 mm

1 x 92 mm

1 x 80 mm

all three fans together will produce around 21-22 dBA which is equal to whispering at sound level, however the fans will most likely be quieter because of smooth tone and frequency. overall you probably wont notice them in your case ( i didn't include a slot-fan because i generally dont think you need it as you already have adequate cooling and because they usually are too loud)

hope i helped, good luck, have fun =D
