Default Best fan for an HTPC?

I'm looking at buying a Silverstone LC17B case and I was wondering if any of you could recommend a quiet 92mm and 80mm fan.

thanks!

You can never go wrong w/ Yate Loon's. Zalman's 80 and 92mm offerings are pretty decent as well if you have a fan controller or throw the resistors that they come w/ on.

Scythe has 80mm Flex fans I believe that are extremely quiet. Not too fast though.. obviously. Depends what level of performance you are looking for

Nothing horrendous... just enough to have a decent airflow. I hear the Yate Loons are pretty loud tho Lowfat.

These might work for ya:
NCIX.com - Buy Scythe Gentle Typhoon 92MM Case Fan 2650RPM 26DB 41.7CFM - D0925C12B3AP-14 In Canada.
I have some 1800 rpm 120mm ones but haven't tried them yet, supposed to be good though.
