Which fan?

You need to open the case and find out which one.

What case do you have?

Sorry I didn't include those stuff.

My case is the Cooler master HAF 912.

The fans that are making the noise are 2 bgears 120MM fans on top of the case.

How do you know they're too loud? Is there a nob so you can adjust the fan speed?

So sorry, I totally missed your reply.

Your fans are deffinately youtr issue, at 103cfm and 2000rpm is goiung to be god aweful loud.

They are way overkill too. You don't need 206cfm of exhaust. You can wire up a resistor inline to slow them down, but you'd be best off with some better fans that are designed to be quieter and move good air.

I have both Corsair and Noctuas that are quiet and "blowy"

You probably only need 100cfm total exhaust, and low pressure which makes them quieter.

Noctuas are very nice, well-made fans, and they also include a low-noise adapter (which is essentially an inline resistor).

I have a HAF 912 case, consider getting the Cooler Master 200mm fan for the top, it runs quiet and moves air. They come in two colors...red and blue. You can also just get a plain no led fan too but it costs more than the one with red led!
Newegg.com - Computer Hardware, Fans & Heatsinks, Case Fans, Cooler Master, 200mm

You Cooler Master case uses proprietary 200mm fans
