Currently running two of these CoolerMaster fans in my case:

One of them is going at 700rpm, the other at the full speed of 1200rpm. The full speed one is kind of loud, so I want to replace it with a silent fan. Let me know you would suggest. It can be either 120mm or 140mm.

1200 RPM isn't a loud fan to start with, almost.

There are NO silent fans. There are quality quiet fans with a lesser, troublesome noise envelope and still decent airflow.

There are NO silent fans

Look at the Scyth Gentle Typhoons, I'd suggest the 1450 RPM ones for you. You DO need some case air flow.

Whatever fans the Thermaltake M9 case comes with are literally silent. I can't hear them easily. They sound like they are 2db or something.

The noisy CoolerMaster fan was installed on the side panel, I took it out and put it on the top of the case as "top exhaust" fan, now the noise is gone. It must have been vibrating or something while installed on the side panel.

Yeah, it helps alot if you put rubber washers on the fans.
