I would definitely get this. It may not be the best cooling but the fans will cool and they are quiet. This seems to be the best deal for you. Buying 5 tornadoes will set you back $90 or so. This seems like a really good price.

Ask and ye shall receive (somewhat). NewEgg lets you search for fans by CFM and dB. They don't have the audio part, unfortunately. That would be cool. I should mention I don't buy fans or drive cables at NewEgg because they want $5-6 to ship a $8 fan or $6 cable - for each one. Hence my recommendation of www.coolerguys.com instead.

Get the ones with the largest fans, the larger ones don't have to spin as much to generate the same amount of airflow giving you a more quieter experience.
