am upgrading my fans and am wondering how loud it will be, if i have nine fans, running at 36 dba each. i would also like to know how loud it would be to have nine fans running at 22 dba and also 19 dba each.

You literally just answered your own question. Lower dba=less noise.

Look into the dual BB scythe fans, I've been very pleased. Off the top of my head, something like 80CFM @ 22DB's...
