Default Quiet 120mm fans?

I'm in the search for quiet 120mm fans that still provide good airflow (probably doesn't exist but hey....).
2 Will be used as front intakes and one will be used as an exhaust pulling through an antec kuhler 620 radiator.
Any ideas? a 4-pin pwm fan would be nice but not necessary.
Thanks!

Wow that's massive lol, Thanks! Any standard suggestions though? It need's to be ~25mm for the screws to fit.

Gentle Typhoons are very nice.
Noctua's are super.
Yate Loons are quiet and usally less expencsive.
Noise Blocker E-Loops are sweet but pricey.
Cougar fans are quiet not too pricey.

For the cooler look into the new corsair sp quiet edition. They are pretty new, get excellent reviews and are designer for static pressure like on a rad.

Cougar Vortex fans are the best ones out there so far. Use them in my rigs and they push a lot of air and hardly make a noise.
