But the general rule of thumb is that the large and slower a fan is, the less likely it will be to drive small animals (and normal people) sufficiently insane.

I won't install anything smaller than 80mm unless it moves slowly.

Someone help me out please.
What is the address of a web site that has previews of fan noise levels?

I just did a search on this and I don't remember all of the sites I encountered. However, the Enermax Ultra-Cool adjustable speed fan was listed by a couple sites as being very quiet. It's an 80x80x25 case fan. I just ordered four of them from Best Byte (www.bestbyte.net) for $5/ea. I can post the results when I get them.

BTW, I just got a new Chieftec case that shipped with Sunon KD1208PTS3 80x80x25 fans. Even though they are spec'd at 25dB, the Sunon fans are pretty loud... hence the reason for the Ultra-Cool fans.
