Okay so I stole my mom's camera since mine is at my gf's. Here are some pictures of the fans and the case. The red circled area is what happens when your tools are not sharp. My HDMI cable wouldn't fit till I chopped the bracket.

Default Need fan advice.

I'm picking up a LC20 this week and would like to grab some VERY quiet 92mm (3) and 80mm (2) fans.

My current setup for my HTPC is:

Asus M2n-e with Amd x2 5400
Asus EAH4850 (with AC S1 Rev.2 with a 120mm Scythe Typhoon)
2 x 1TB Seagate HD's (storage)
1 x 160gig Seagate HD (OS)
4 gig (4x1) E6400(?) DDR2
Scythe Shuriken (I want to use one of the 92mm fans to replace them as this is the loudest fan in my current case).
Antec 550W (I think) PSU with adjustable fan speed.

For the best in terms of silence, I'd say get a low-speed Noctua or Nexus fan. Otherwise, on a budget, get a Coolermaster, Yate-loon or Arctic cooling fan that's also low speed.

I just bought the LC20B over X-mas for my HTPC I'll try to take a few picks for you to see but I used all Gelid fans. I have a Noctua 92mm in my main rig and I prefer the Gelid's for silence however the Noctua seems to move more air.
