Quiet 120mm fans
Looking for a quiet 120mm case fan with a black/red or straight black colour scheme. I'm trying to match a Maximus Gene. Seems to be tougher than I figured. I looked at the late yoons, but price/performance ratio on them doesn't seem very good. Although, if I don't find anything better... I may have to go that route. Please no suggestions with LED lights.

You can try checking Thermalright X-SILENT-120 120MM Liquid State Bearing Cooling Fan, NCIX sells them for $9.99.
If you don't mind about grey color fan blade, Scythe Gentle Typhoon would be good for static pressure.

If you want to plug them on a fan controller, Yateloon 120 are decent. Otherwise, scythe S-flex are probably your best bet.

You mean to quiet them down? I have three in my case(above desk) right now and it is not loud. Not perfectly silent but still pretty quiet. It is a crappy case too. :P

I'd say the low to mid speed S-flexes are quiet. The 1900 RPM G models certainly are not quiet, at least at full speed. The D or E models would be fine.

Airfoxx Electric Fans - 36" Industrial Grade Drum Fan - Red / Black - 2 Speeds - BFD36a

That might work. I'm suspicious that it might possibly be loud since they don't give a db rating..... :thumb:

Per, nice!
OP should get that. :)

Gelid Silent Are amazing fans, but they don't match your Theme.

As odd as it sounds you could go for TT Turbo's and dial them down with a Controller, but thats more cost and more work.

OTherwise go straight black *(colour sceme and lack of LED's hinders some good fan designs)*.

NCIX.com - Buy Zalman ZM-F3 120MM Sleeve Bearing Case Fan Black 900/1800RPM 20/34DBA 3PIN Connector - ZM-F3 In Canada.

Not bad at all these guys.
