  1. You should just pick out the best performing fans, and attach them to a controller. That way, you have cooling power when you need it, and quietness when you want it. It's cheap too. This one cost $7 and covers 5 fans:

    Lol, good article. As expected, that "fluid dynamics bearing fan" are much nosier than 8.7 dba. 8.7 is impossible to begin with, as the wind noise at the rated rpm will be far higher by itself. Bearing don't produce any noticable noise to begin with. When you hear fan noise, it's blade cutting air. Bearing type will affect lifespan, not noise level.

    A very good source.

    Realize, though that the noise of a fan is mostly determined by the RPM's at which it is running. 900 rpm will be quiet for most 120mm fans. Over 1500RPM will start to get noisy. Your sensitivity to noise will, of course vary.
    To fine tune the trade off between noise vs. cooling, you can use a Zalman fanmate $3.99 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835118217
