Default a not noisy fan...

I would like to replace my fans (intake and outtake) in my computer (case) for some less noisy ones. The ones I have now are really annoyingly loud...
Any suggestions where to purchase some fans that are less noisy than what I have right now... Thanks!

Where do you live?

Depending on what you consider noisy, but anything over 30decibels gets on my nerves (my HS fan can go up to 40, but it is annoying at that loudness.

What size fans do you have?

I live in Columbus,Ohio...
I just need two basic 80 mm fans.

The noise annoys my wife more than it does me though...

the bigger the fan you use, the quieter it will be, wile moving more air providing better cooling. and lasts longer.
