Its $10 plus $5 shipping and the customer reviews are positive. It uses an 80mm 2500 rpm fan so it should be quiet.

I ordered one yesterday to silence a friends PC, so I will proably know my Tuesday if it is any good, and when the fan wears out I can just pop in a regular case fan to replace it.

Nexus makes the quietest fans. I have a 92mm one on my Thermalright heatsink and I can barely hear it. It replaced a SilenX fan of the same size which was noticeably louder, which despite being rated at 14dba was probably more like 21.
