Four 69cfm fans @ 35.5dba each (a total of 142dba) or four 131.5cfm fans @ 45dba ( 180dba total). Which would you prefer?

More air is a good thing.

By the way the sound level is logarithmic- going from 1 to 2 will add 3dB, going from 2 to 4 will add another 3dB.

It depends on your setup and your taste how many fans you need. Thank god Tim is right about the sound, else..hmm 180dba? I guess the meaning of loud has to be redefined to get there ;-)
