I plan to purchase 3 case fans. 80mm 2intake and 1 exhaust. Currently I have what came with the case.

Need a good quiet fan. I dont plan to OC my cpu soon so I dont need super cooling or anything.

any suggestions?

The Panaflo M fans are not particularly loud. Suggest avoiding Vantec. Not a lot of sound, but a very annoying one. You could also try one of the Zalman voltage reducers. These are basically a 3 pin extender with a resistor in-line.

I've been pleased with both Vantec's Stealth line of quiet fans, as well as the PC Power and Cooling Silencer fans. Top quality and performance without much noise. :thup:
