Currently have two Cooler Master R4 120mm exhaust fans, they are okay, but not quite as quiet as I would like them, and they don't move as much air as I want, so I think I may replace them with a pair of 140mm fans.
The R4s are rated at 20db, but I think they are more like 28-30 db. The 140mm fans definitely cannot be any louder than these, ideally I would like the new fans to be much quieter. Let me know what you suggest.
Currently I am considering the Xigmatek XLF series like this one:

or Thermalright X-Silent:

These 140mm fans are rated at like 16db, but I don't really trust the manufacturer's data.

I checked a few references. The Yate Loon and Scythe 140mm case fans are about as good as it gets.
