Default silent fans

I'm looking for silent 120mm fans. I've got some enermax fans here but they really don't push a lot of air when 'quiet'. I've got some 120mm delta's but at 7Volt they're too loud and at 5volt they don't start

So I'm looking for some new fans, any suggestions? requirements:
1. Very silent, at 5volt close to 'unhearable', absolutely under 25 Decibel
2. Not too expensive, 50€ AND transport to my place
3. Perhaps a bit fancier then a black color, they're placed in the top of my case

Titans seem to be on paper the hotspot, anyone here able to verify that? Sale-in @ Cosh is runnin right now

Titan AluFrame 120x120x25
Luftfördervolumen: 79 CFM
Geräuschpegel: 30 dba
Leistung: 3,36 W
RPM: 2000
Abmessungen: 120x120x25

OR
should I wait until the next papst sale-in @ inkoopactie.be, it'll be 10€ less expensive then ordering at cosh

OR
get fans at www.the-shop.be, transport is free, they can order the fans for me

Papst case fan 120mm
Super quiet - about 19dB - with 3-pins molex
Price - 26.00 EUR

Titan fans are also available there @ 26€

three places to order and choose some kind of fan... your opinion please!

Always check fan - specs on the manufacturers-site.

I noticed many times that the dealer-specs (CFM & dB) vary A LOT !

Compare the following table for example: http://www.papst.de/products_luefter_dcaxial01.html

Papst does NOT produce a 120mm 19dB fan

A rheo - fanbus will solve all your questions

I saw an alu fan in the store on the last occ, it was very quiet, evne with my ear next to it, and it pushed a lot of air.

how can you define quietness at OCC??

A Delta screamer would be quiet there.

BTW going to kick *** this weekend

Indeed it is, but I'm serious. A little bit further they were showing theur new 80mm ccfl fans and they were incredibly loud compared with the alu fan.

120mm, 79 CFM & <30 dB

Specs of the fans look a little too good imo (like a 80mm, 47CFM fan <29 dB :wtf: )

can you compare one with a silent papst? I don't find those specs very reliable either

Hook 'em up at a voltage so they're silent (prolly 7v for the titan and 5v for the papst). check on noise level and airflow please

Multi-directional air intake increases airflow while keeping the relative noise at minimal.

Maybe they'll have 120mm one's someday
