Check this link from the Heatsink Guide.
Go to the section on making your fans silent. Its so simple why didn't I think of it. Tried it on my old pc that has a 120 Sunon 108cfm fan and a 92 Sunon fan. I swear it knocked the noise down. It also cuts your cfm by 40%, but who needs 108cfm 60+ cfm should be sufficient.
And I just layed out $60+ for the Panaflos. (Ouch)

Even easier is the procedure of reverting the power connector altogether, thus applying 5V to the fan. As they state in article some fans do not run on 5V but many do...
