Default 2 good 140mm case fans

Hey there, I have a new build and it's mostly together. However I've decided that I want 2 extra 140mm case fans just to increase air flow considering how long the video card is. My case has a dust screen on the bottom and front so that's where I'll be pulling air in from. I'd like 2 fans that have strong quiet airflow. I can cough up some extra cash for 2 quality fans.... any suggestions?

My System Specs

Default

Deep Cool Uf140-X

sold by Logisys in US/Canada

140 mm PWM fans. ( if you have 4 pin fan headers on the moutherboard you can control fan speeds in most BIOS )

Also good 140 mm rad fans or heat sink fans.

Edit: Logisys SF140 140mm Rubberized Frame 3/4/PWM Fan

Interestingly enough that's the same fan that's attached to the heat sink on the CPU cooler. I do like the rubberized frame, is there anything like that with an LED? I know LED isn't really important but with a glass door on the side I figure pretty lights should come out at least

I also realised that there are rubber screws and washers out there... that would cut down on vibration as well and open up some options for LEDs

Honestly for case fans...I love my Corsair AF140s. But the Spec Pros are good kit too.

Spectre Pros for the higher side of Airflow, and variety of colours.

Coolermaster does have a Blue R4 140mm as well, its quieter but still moves decent air.

However if you can deal with some wind noise:

NZXT Fz LED Series 140mm Blue Case Fan 1000+/-200 RPM 83.6 CFM 24.5 dbA 3Pin and 4Pin

NZXT has been on a role lately. They ain't too shabby.
