    I personally like the Antec TriCool 120mm case fan. It has a switch with 3 speed settings. Low, med and high. I keep mine on low and it works great with no noise...

    it is the coolermaster cm690 as it says in my system specs , 2 in (bottom front) 2 out ( top rear) . the fans spaces on the side panel are no longer used as i have modded the case to remove them , hence the good/high airflow fan needed

    I have no real answer. I find that the tricools that came in my antec 1200 are kind of noisey Imho. They may be different than the ones that were mentioned.

    the antec tri cools are ok as longa s you have them on low, otherwise i find them a bit noisy.
    coolermaster R4 fans are supposed to decent, but i havent tried them yet.
    noctuas are good if you can stand the colour.
    scythe and akasa also make good fans.

    +1 for Scythes, Gentle Typhoon variety.

    Noctua if you can afford it and don't mind the ugliness.

    This also has pretty slick specs for a case fan

    Scthye 1900rpm 110CFM fan

    here is a link
    http://www.overclockers.co.uk/showproduct.php?prodid=FG-022-SY&groupid=701&catid=57&subcat=4

    Had them running on 4pin Molex and have seen this puppy reach as high as 2100rpm and the amount of air it pumps out is just awesome. Have it attached to my Thermalright Ultra 120 Extreme and it dropped temps by around 10*C lower than when using the stock 1200rpm fan the cooler came with. If I had the choice I would replace ALL my case fans (8 120mm in total) with these fans they are that good.

    I'm using Zalman ZM-F3's in my case and couldn't be happier, even got them push/pull on my H50.

    High CFM at low speeds.

    Noctua, Scythe... If you need airflow, then Delta 120*120*35mm 4000rpm seems to be the king, but it's kinda noisy one.

    i have 3 thermalrights in my case, one in the back spinning at 900RPM, two in the front spinning at 700. id have the front two spinning faster if the fan brackets on my case didnt make such a silly tonal vibration noise with RPMs over 750 :(
