Hi All:

I recently built my HTPC using a Silverstone LC17-B ATX Media Center / HTPC Case (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811163055). The 80 mm fans in this unit really create a lot of noise. I would like to buy two very, very quite fans. Anyone have a good suggestion? I have found some "ultra quiet fans" but would prefer a reference by someone on the board who really knows/has used one. Thanks,
Harold

Enermax Enlobal fans are quiet, older japanese panaflos too. Most motherboards have automatic fan speed control so make sure that is enabled in your bios and plug the fans into the right headers on the board.

you can also use Rubber Fan Mount Grommets to minimise the noise
