    Depends on your case. 120mm fans are going to give the best trade-off between cooling and noise, but if they don't fit then that doesn't do a lot for you. SilenX are the quietest fans around, but are expensive and hard to get hold of.

    These guys have the widest range of quiet fans I've seen in this country:

    Dust filters are a good idea, and can be had from kustompcs. Why do the fans need to be quiet if its in the attic? anyway, there are a couple of manufacturers offering dust proof (bearings) fans at the moment and i believe these are available at kustompcs.

    also look at nexus fans, and panaflow: www.dorothybradbury.co.uk

    I plumped for the Akasa Amber series fans, only a tenner each which is half the price of the SilenX ones and they are rated at only 22dB which is quiet enough for most (especially quiet enough for the attic) and they shift enough air.

    As for dust filters, not really my thing. The ones that came with the case are good enough for me.
