    I need some 80mm case fans that are as quiet as possible. I have Antec Tricools in there now, and they are quite loud even at half speed. My mATX case sits right next to me so I want something very quiet.

    Any suggestions?

    Scythe fans with the sony dynamic fluid bearing. Also, consider getting lower RPM.

    Also, is it possible to switch to a 120mm? I have 6 Scythe 120's in my build at 800 RPM. and I can't hear my case at all. The case if you wonder is the Antec P183.

    Well, when you say quiet, I'm expecting you want quiet. Go on newegg, and go check out the case fans by db.
