I'd got for Noctuas. I've got 3, and they're great!

If you get Yate Loon's do not get them at xoxide.com. Get them only at Petra's Tech Shop. They buy them straight from Yate Loon from what I have heard around quite a bit.

I would recommend Noctuas though. I have one and I plan on replacing all of my other 120mm fans with more.

Yate Loons are a fabulous cheaper solution though; Antec TriCool Fans are also good atleast the ones in my Antec 300 are nice and quiet.

I use 3 of these in my P182 with an Ultra 4 channel fan controller

Unless the OP is planning on running a fan controller as well, those SHs are definitely not going to silent. I run 800rpm L Slipstreams on my pc at home and even they aren't completely silent. If you're willing to put up with a little noise though, the 1200 Slipstreams offer a good cfm to noise ratio. The 800 rpm model is quiet but doesn't really move a ton of air if you have a big case.

I run 1200M slipstreams at about 9v and they are near silent.

Noctua NF-P12 hands down. They're a bit expensive though. I had planned on using all NF-P12 fans in my case, but recently dropped that idea after figuring how much that would cost. I can buy about 3 to 4 Yate Loon fans for the price of one Noctua fan.

What makes fans are the size, rpm and quality, forget what dB the manufactures state. If you want quiet/silence your looking at 1200rpm and below. I know the xilence fans run at 1400rpm, they are quiet, but not silent. 1000rpm is a good rpm for silence.

Go for:

Yate loons
Nexus

if your on a budget.
