    I have coolermaster quad led blue 80mm fans for my case .... they come with 3pin fan connector but also come with a 3pin-to-4pin(molex psu) adapter.... I plug mine into a sunbeam rheobus .... you plug all the 3pin fans into the rheobus and give it power from your psu then it powers them all plus gives speed controll and funky lights on the front.

    If you want quietness, don't get those. I have two (1 front, 1 rear) and have to unplug them when watching DVD's or in the evening when it's quiet as they're all I can hear!

    But then I don't think there are any really quiet fans that have LED's on, so I suppose a fan controller would then be a must.

    Thats mine, 172mm 300cfm 24vdc fan. Unfortunatly I havent got a 24v psu, so I will run it at 8-12v. Fans next to it are 92mm, 80m and 40mm, for comparason.
    At 9v is it inaudable and still pushes more air than niosy 120mm fans. 12v it is slightly audable but still below what most fans are. The niose is lower pitched too, so much less anoying.
    Btw it does have a grill with it, I wouldnt even think about touching the spining blades, these things are capable of snapping your finger off! yes I tryed it with a pencil

    these are hard to find, and cost £30+ new. I got this from the for sale forum here for £15

    Watercooling
    the idea is massive fan at 10v = silent, will still psuh as much air as lots of small niosy fans. Then I get two large car heatercores (vaxhual nova ones), put them infront of each other, and use the fan to suck lots of air through both. Watercooling is basicly just a heat pump, so that you can move the heat to a much bigger surface, and get rid of it quieter. I also like the idea of sticking the fan and heatercores in garden, so that I get no niose, full cfm, very nice temps.
    Alternativly that fan and a decent sized copper heatsink is enough to cool a large TEC, which would allow sub zero temps for ... £16.50 for fan, cost of heatsink (£20-40..), a psu capable of 172w and a psu capable of >24v for the fan (two modded atx psus could do this, aswell as supply the TEC). the problem with that though is LOTS of niose. Most cpus need a 220w tec or greater though... bigger h/s and two of those fans maybe?
