    Any within a decent price range? They are seriously over-priced & understocked. :p

    For silence, I usually use Gelid fans, which all of the fans' line is the silent type.
    It's just that their high airflow models are the ones with fancy designs a.k.a. 'gamer fan'. -.-;

    Problem is most Yate Loons are knock-offs, very few are real. Only twos sites on the whole Internet actually have been confirmed to have real ones by the creators. FrozenCPU, and Xoxide.

    for silent rad/cpu fans, i'd say go for the zalman f3-fdbs if you can still find them. been running them on my corsair h70 cooler. at full speed, theyre much much quieter than the default corsair fans (23db), have the same airflow (70CFM), but the static pressure is much much better (2.6mmH2O). it was enough to cause a temp drop of 5-8C at full load and 2-4C at idle compared to the corsair fans.

    Sleeve bearing fans never last long

    If you want good fans for the price, try CoolerMaster R4s, they are pretty quiet for the amount of air they put off.

    CoolerMaster R4's are pretty bad, I've read reviews and looked at them myself. Sure, a pack of 4 is like 8$, so cheap as hell; but I'd rather have 2 good fans, rather than 4 poor quality ones.

    Thing is I am looking for 2x 120MM fans for my side-panel for the new case I plan to get. Yeah, I heard SlipStreams die early, sadly...

    Noctua is expensive, Gently Typhoons as well. Such a tough choice.

    I have them myself, otherwise i wouldnt have recommended them myself :facepalm:.
    1 fan is on sale for 8$.... http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835103090

    Where is your pack of 4 for 8$? These are coolermaster R4 SickeFlows. very quiet and have been running for about 3 years now with no issues.

    theyre good as case fans but not so good as heatsink fans.

    from testing on my corsair radiator, they perform worse than the default corsair fans.

    their static pressure is nowhere near what they claim.

    oh i know that CM and majority of other compaines exagerate their specs, but they are still good for the money. and they do fine for heatsinks, but radiators are too much for them. Anyways, im replacing them with notcuas NF-F12 Focused Flow fans, that should be a bit better for me.

    I actually use two Noctua's in my case, one as intake and one as exhaust (NF-P12... think it's basically the same fan as what was linked earlier, but doesn't have the little silicon vibration dampeners on the corners where the screws are). Yes, they are expensive, but to tell you the truth, i think they're actually one of those where you actually DO get what you pay for. Extremely quiet, and move a good bit of air.

    Huum, Noiseblocker have do a pretty job on one of my rads, and they are extremely silent for a good result. (i will say they are not the best, but they are cheap for the result. ( huum with 2-3fans minimum, i will not choose them for a 1 fan rad )

    Scythe 2000+rpm, but you need a fan controller. (not the gentle, the other one, sorry cant remember the name. )

    The Noctua too, but they cost a little bit too much.

    Both Noctua & Scythe cost a little to much.

    Christ, tiny fans, the size of a cookie @ 25$. They are fans, no matter the innovation, it's pretty nuts.
