The problem is, they are Sleeve bearing fans. And because my CPU cooler is blowing out the back, and not out the top, they will have mounted horizontally.
I'm not really sure what level of db sounds like so I can't give an exact level, but I have a 1500rpm fan now for my cooler running at 100% and I don't mind it's sound. I'd say though nothing above 30db. They also must be 120mm to fit my cooler. LEDs are a take it or leave it, but if it has them they must be blue (OCD thing ).
I've found 2 fans that are reasonably priced with pretty good reviews. What do you think?

If you're concerned about horizontal positioning, really only one choice.
