Can't say much about the fans you listed, and you didn't say what kind of CPU you have... I'm using a ThermalRight HR-01 with a Scythe Kama fan and it's very quiet - pretty much inaudible compared to the stock fan on my old 2.4GHz Pentium 4 system.

Bigger fan will be more quiet than smaller fan, because it will turn more slowly to more the same amount of air.
I have one of these:

^+1. If you need to get it quieter, take a look at some Scythe fans. You can swap out the fan on that S1283 with another 120mm fan. Also look in to a Fan controller.
