I wouldn't hear them over my music, so more cooling potential.
But if I can hear them over say, a nuclear bomb, they probably are a little too loud.

Nexus fans looked alright but I decided to go with NZXT fans for a temporary solution until I get water cooling, thank you.

Here is the one I have on newegg LINK
**Forgot to add in case make sure not all of your fans are blowing air in. For instance bring in through the front and out of the back and out of the top. Air flow is best when the fans are positioned right. Do that and add the controller and you wont be disappointed.
I have some automated fan controller that works well but I'll order one of those soon.
