Delta has 80/85/92 mm fans http://www.delta.com.tw/product/cp/dcfans/dcfans_product.asp?pcid=1&ptid=1
just like SanAce has http://products.sanyodenki.com/en/contents/hp0067/list.php?CNo=67&ProCon=1203

Alphacool and Phobya cannot be found here, and I'm not going through all the additional costs, time and effort to import.

Out of the more well known and renowned fan brands I can get only Blacknoise (Noiseblocker) and Noctua.
The only Noisblocker that fits my requirements, is available and is sort of within my budget and (~18 USD) is BlackSilentPRO PLPS.
There is Noctua NF-S12B Redux PWM also at ~18 USD and Noctua NF-P12 PWM at ~21 USD.

I realize that the Notcua NF-P12 is good but is it really that much better than the Arctic F12, as it is basically twice the price.

@Cyclops, as most fans go with standard 25mm thick, it is hard to find good revies of slimmer fans. I am looking intakes for RVZ01 which can mount 3x120mm fans and Slim (15-12mm thick) fanswould help a lot. One slot can use 140mm slim fan with 120mm fan mounting holes. Any recommendations? Some noise is acceptable as case will be 2 meters away from me.

If you are putting it in front of the HDD cage for example you may need some static pressure fans like the P12, while if you are mounting them in exhaust position and less obstructed fan mounts then any regular air cooling fan will work.

For the record, I have some F12a's laying around that I could test up aginst some F12's I have to see the difference in noise level, but I don't have the experience with the 12b.

If you can get them then I know the Cooler Master Silencio FP12 is relatively good static pressure fans that cost quite a bit less than most others in that category.

Really though, for me at least when youi want real silence I figured out that my PSU was actually the noisy thing in my case and not the cooling fans. So it would be good to find out what components actually make noise before adding more fans that you want to be dead silent.

Something to keep in mind though is that usually 14cm fans are a bit more quiet than their 12cm counterparts since you can run them at lower speeds while moving the same air. Just something to consider at least since the case has mounts for them in the top, bottom side and rear.

Also low RPM fans are tha way to go for silence, especially since you want to run them below 1000rpm anywways. I have had cehap fan sbe very quiet simply beacuse I ran them at such a low RPM that they barely moved any air. So for me anyways, I would go back to the first post and look at the noise/performance graph and use that as a guide to selecting fans. It is hard to recommend anything when I'm not sure what fans are available localy for you and especially considering the pricing is different.

I'll post a few links here that you are by no means obligated to follow, but they should at the very least show you some other fan roundups as well for comparison. What you should look for is basically the fan that performs best compared to the noise level (which I assume you know), and while I can reccomend fans for you all day, I really don't know what is available and the pricing poiint in your respective country. I assume you know how to proceed with looking for fans? look at the best performing one compared to noise level (lowest numbers) and if it's not available or not in budget, then look at number 2 and proceed like that.

The only slim 120mm fan I've tested is the Gelid Slim FN-FW12SLIMB-15. It's 15mms thick and the performance is pretty good.

After spending quite some time reading various reviews and opinions, I decided to delay a couple of other items out of my shopping list, increase the fan budget a little and go with two JetFlo's and two BlackSlentPro's. I'm already using a Noctua product (NT-H1), other manufacturers/brands need some love too. tongue.gif

The JetFlo's will replace my fans on the front of the case since there is a dust filter there and there are a few hard drives so there is some obstruction. The included Corsair front fans will most likely be mounted/moved on the other side of the hard drive "cage" for a push/pull configuration, especially since they have white LED's which I can turn on or off with a button on my case, so when I open it to tinker with my hardware I can have some light inside.

The BlackSilentPro's positions are yet not completely clear, most likely bottom or side intake.

In the next months I might get some more BlackSilentPro's and BlackSilentFan's and have different teams. Team BLP will be side/bottom intake and Team BSF will be rear/top exhaust, or vice versa.
And of course Team JF will be front intake.

I'm weird like that, I like symmetry and order. But since this is OCN, I'm guessing I'm sort of among my own kind. smile.gif

In case you can't find the Gelid's @contay, have a look at the Phobya G-Silent 12 Slim Edition. Either Gelid makes the fan for Phobya as well or they use the same OEM. At least Systemastore has it though the price is a little bit steep..
If you want PWM then this one from Akasa might be worth a look. "Enter bearing" is apparently some sort of fluid bearing variant by Everflow, EBR for Enter Bearing Rotation.

Then there's of course Scythe's 3pin Slip Stream Slim's but they've sleeve bearings, as well as FN123, FW121 from Silverstone.

Thanks for tips but I am one step (or at least a half) ahead. I checked phobyas as well as Akasas (I have few Akasa fans but not slim ones). I am also wondering Prolimatech Ultra Sleeks which are pwm-fans like akasas. With 4pin y-adapter I could hook them to only case fan header my mobo has and tune them down. What I am worried is how double ball bearing in them goes in horizontal position.

Prolimatech fans are somewhat available here (@lagittaja, Jimms at least) and aren't that expensive. Nowhere cheap, but not as expensive as some. Of course, specs don't tell the whole truth and I have to find some reviews. Those Phobyas (Systemastore) are little cheaper but long shipping time as they are not in stock. Neither are Prolimatechs at Jimms, but they usually get stuff fast. Usually. Akasas seems to be louder but I highly doubt Prolimatechs go with 18dB they say. So, next thing is some deep net research.

What it comes to silverstone fans, they are stock fans in RVZ01 and FTZ01. I still haven't decided which case I take, but either one. They differ mostly on exterior and material so it is mostly an Aesthetich choise.

Hi, I own a Jetflo 120, in the website it says it has 36dbA noise. can I use it as comparison to the charts?

Additional Info:
I just change my chassis from Silencio 650 to thermaltake core v1. I tried playing games, among heavy battles during gaming, I can hear the noise from jetflo, only use 1 by the way. sounds like this "wingggggggggggggg".

36 dba isn't very quiet. I would suggest using temperature to control the voltage to the fan, IE if its hot it ramps up, if its cool its spinning slow, any decent fan controller with thermal probe will achieve this.
