    Looking for recommendations on the quietest case fans you've tried. I'm currently running two 4000rpm fans that are so loud they cover the sound of the 8 fans I have in my server so needless to say i'd like to pull them out.

    I'll likely run three fans 2 in back, 1 in front (cooling hard-drives)

    Vantec stealth fans are really quiet, and panflow has a couple of quiet models. You could also look at a smart fan that will speed up when the extra cooling is needed and slow down when it's not. Thermaltake has the smartfan 2 that will work like that.

    try running 120mm fans if possible. My Antec case has two 120mm fans that move a desent amount of air, and i cant hear them @ all.
