My System Specs

Default Want to change all my fans

So, my case is a little on the loud side, and I'd like to switch out all of my fans in order to quieten it down.

I'm running a Coolermaster 690II Advanced.

I'm currently running case fans in the following positions:

Front intake: 140mm (size maxed out)
Bottom Intake: 120mm (size maxed out)
Top Intake: 1) 120mm (size up to 140mm) 2) 140mm (size maxed out)
Rear Exhaust: 2x120mm push/pull with 120mm rad.

I'd like the rear exhaust 'push' fan to have a blue LED, and needless to say the two rad fans need a high static pressure, as well as a 4-pin connector in order to regulate their speed via the motherboard CPU fan headers.

The rest of the case fans I'd like as such:
front intake: 140mm blue LED
bottom intake: 120mm blue LED
top fans (both positions): 140mm.

These fans don't need a particularly high airflow or pressure since 4 of them should be enough to provide positive pressure. I'd like the case fans to be focused more on silence than any other criteria. If I have to sacrifice the LEDs in order to get a quieter fan, I will, although if a particularly quiet fan is available with LEDs, I'll go that way. My computer has a blue theme going on, so keep that in mind. Red fan blades wouldn't work too well.
