    silenx are great but mind your whole in your pocket! lol

    decent, expensive and worth it!

    otherwise anything!
    or you could get some cheap ebuyer ones and 7v them, then they will be really quiet and should be suitable!

    the fans (from ebuyer should be about 80p!)

    SilentX!

    I don't have any but at 11dB or 14dB depending on which model you buy they're very quiet

    had a look at the silenx fans. Very impressive.

    will it really make any difference if i go for the 11dB model or the 14dB one?

    Cheers

    does anyone know anywhere cheaper or better to shop, or is this place ok.

    Cheers.

    delta senslow 86.52 CFM,, 37.6 dBA and thats at 12v

    so at 7v it would still kick ass and be very quiet/silent

    on the 11dba 14 dba difference, to us dumb humans there is absolutely no audiable differecne, only difference is that the higher dba (silenx) the more cfm (thorughput you will get)

    but bear in mind that if you have a lot of air being pulled in or pushed out it can create air noise as the air goes through grills etc, and that is what you may be able to hear as a result, and may differentiate between the two silenx products!
