    I need one, I'm not as ok as many here with the machine being really loud. I found a link a while back promoting gentle typhoon but newegg sells out the moment they come in.

    The haf is so open, it doesn't hide the sound well at all. I'm willing to spend up to $30 each for two quiet fans, any suggestions?

    well, if u r willing to spend 30 bucks a pop, get something with Nanoflux Bearing, Magnetic Bearing, or Fluid Dynamic which is more popular, they are quieter then more common less expansive bearings like Sleeve, and they will last longer. And afcors a fan controller is a must for u, but u probably already have that

    The Noctua and Silenx are good as is that Xiggy. I think Scythe has some 9 bladed fans on newegg that have high static pressure, low dBa, and high cfm. Give those a look too.
