    My computer is way too loud. It's a Systemax system fairly well built with an Intel 930D processor, NVIDIA 7900 GTX graphics card, 2 X 250 SATA 10K drives and 2GB of Corsair RAM with the light up LEDs . . .

    Anyhow, the fans that came with it are obnoxiously loud, so I'd like to replace them all (except for the one on the graphics card)

    What are your recommendations for the following?
    CPU Fan
    3X 80mm Fan
    1X 120mm Fan

    I need super quiet fans with good airflow as the system generates a lot of heat. I'm running intense workloads on it most of the day and often overnight.

    I prefer Panaflo fans. I have a 120mm Panaflo that I use on my CPU. It's great!

    Also, there is a Thermaltake 120mm that's decent. As far as 80's go. Just look for on average about 28 or less db. and a decent cfm... say 23.

    You might also want to try a fan controller. You can reduce speeds to change the pitch of the fans.
