Thread Starter 
I'm planning on an antec tricool, but if there are any quieter ones, I'd like to know.

Newegg only.

The blue LED CoolerMaster R4 is a fairly good choice, but I'd probably go for the Tri-Cool.

I'll second the Cooler Master. Just have to find one that is low RPM as they make several models. I think the lowest is around 1200RPM. I find the Cooler Master to be quieter than the Antec at roughly similar speeds. It may or may not differ enough to matter.

The R4 is pretty good too.

I have the ENERMAX Apollish UCAP12-BL, and I think its a good fan.

Get a Thermaltake 120mm , the one with the bracket so you can control speed from the back of pc, You can take it to like 800rpm or 1300rpm and you wont notice it added to your rig,, gl ,

blue LED Yate Loons, not quite as quiet as the regular slow versions, but run them between 7-9v and they'll be pretty much silent.
