These are what I use, I have 5 in my box...They are a little loud but it's a low pitched sound... Any of the big Sunnons and Panaflo's are good fans.You can't use cheap rheostat's with them though, they are high wattage fans...Sunon 120mm Ball Bearing Fan w/ 4pin 108CFM 42dBA

Case fans come in different sizes, 120, 80, 90 mm, etc. the Silverstone FM**1 series are good fans that have adjustable RPM.
The Delta fans are monsters, the best they have is a 120x38mm 220cfm fan, it's extremely loud though.
