Since I upgraded my comp and installed my new CPU cooler (Arctic Cooling Freezer 7 Pro). I have noticed that most of the noise in my system now comes from the 3 120mm case fans I have been using in my case for the last 5+ years (Antec Tri-Cool 3-Speed 120mm) so I decided its time for new fans!

I am looking for info on what case fans you guys are using and how quiet they are normally and also under load. Also I am thinking about getting a fan controller and your views on them would also be appreciated.

Thanks folks

I think the quietest fan so far is made by Noctua. I don't use them (yet), because my blue-led case fans are still ok and running.

Product Description
Want to seriously up the cooling factor of your PC? If you're looking for a big dramatic change to your system, well, it simply doesn't get much bigger than this.

This monstrously silent case fan measures in at a whopping 360mm, and is sure to make a big impression on both the interior of your case...and just about anyone checking out the exterior itself.

While several cases are now being made for a cooling component of this size, this 360mm fan is especially useful for any hardcore modder who's ready to get down and dirty and cut some large side panel holes for installation. In addition, this 360mm Silent Case Fan also comes with a Black Fan Grill / Filter that will provide a snug fit on the side of your case.
