i would like to replace the current fan on my heatsink because i prefer to get a more quieter fan than the current one(stock fan). which fan is the best choice?

Get some Scythe Gentle Typhoons, The Ap-14 is famous for it's silence and I should know I've got 7 of them in my case. And if you want a bit more performance, get the ap-15, also very famous for it's noise/performance ratio. Excellent fans with a good static pressure for the dense heatsinks of Noctua.

Also pretty good, but expensive and I'm not sure if they have comparable static pressure.

I don't know what model you want to get from noiseblocker, but it won't differ much. The Gentle typhoon ap-14 is almost inaudible unless you keep your ear straight beside it of course. Since I don't have any personal experiences with the noiceblockers I can't be 100% certain.

If you want more info I suggest your google for "120mm fan round up" or review of the specific fan you're interested in.

How could the fans be too loud with the U.L.N.As(Ultra low noise adapters)? I'm guessing you don't know they came with your NH-D14.

Here is the info off NewEgg:
Rotational Speed (+/- 10%): 1200 RPM (NF-P14) / 1300 RPM (NF-P12)
Rotational Speed with U.L.N.A. (+/- 10%): 900 RPM (NF-P14) / 900 RPM (NF-P12)

Airflow: 64.96 CFM (NF-P14) / 54.36 CFM (NF-P12)
Airflow with U.L.N.A.: 49.29 CFM (NF-P14) / 37.34 CFM (NF-P12)

Acoustical Noise: 19.6 dB(A)(NF-P14)/ 19.8 dB(A) (NF-P12)
Acoustical Noise with U.L.N.A.: 13.2 dB(A) (NF-P14) / 12.6 dB(A) (NF-P12)

My 2 180mm case fans are what i mostly hear with my sig rig. The D14's fans are pretty much inaudible without the U.L.N.As.
