    I need a quiet 80mm fan. which one?

    My dads computer has an 80mm case fan/CPU fan (Ducting on a dell) and it is slowly dying. His computer is starting to freeze up due to overheating.

    My question to all of you...

    What 80mm fan can I get for him that is quiet, but will give me some good air flow?

    Links please

    Thanks everyone!

    definitely Panaflo. It flows nearly as much as air as the ones with the highest airflow and is a extremely quiet. I have a Sanyo Denki that blows extremely hard but is so noisey that it is intolerable. I took it off my heat sink on my cpu and replaced with the panaflo. My cpu temperature only went up about 1 or 2 degrees celsius but the noise reduction was dramatic.
    Have you had a zerbert today?
