Looking for another case fan

#1
After only about a year of constant use, my Thermaltake Smart Case Fan II has apparently went out. Now, I need (want) a new case fan. I'm looking for some recommendations on an 80 or 90mm case fan. It should be fairly quiet (don't want to hear it over my already waayyy loud GeForce FX 5900), and have a good cfm rating. I can't really get one that auto adjusts itself according to how hot the cpu is since there's nowhere to put the sensor on my new heatsink.

Any recommendations?

panoflo's quiter fans are nice or if you get a 92mm one.. try out zalman... the cfm may not be as great as a delta but they are pretty decent for silent fans

you say 80mm or 90mm (aka 92mm). your case will take either one? if so, be sure to get a 92mm fan. the bigger the better as you'll get less noise and move more air.

unless you have or are going for a super-quiet setup, i'd get a fan that moves more like 40cfm of air and will makes maybe 30db of noise (which is still very quiet).

vantec stealth fans are good i guess i got one for my computer. Its just for my Hard Drive though. My hard drive runs hot so i put a fan there for it. Anyway i like the fans you cant hear them at all at there max speed even with the cover off the case. all i can tell you about the air flow with them is that if you put your hand in front you can feel a good amount of air being pushed around, but i didnt need much since i already had 3 other fans.

Well, I can't go for a super quiet setup since I've got this GeForce FX 5900. It's so freakin' loud. I just don't want to hear this fan over it.
