Based on the customer feedback of SilenX fans, I'd recommend getting something else instead (failure-prone FD bearings, mediocre quietness...).

How about a Nexus LED fan?

They have the same specs as their standard Real Silent fan (which is a favorite of SPCR), so I'd assume they're nearly as quiet. And I say nearly because of the clear plastic frame.

Or if you want to save a few dollars, you can get a slightly faster Yate Loon LED fan (YL makes the 120mm Nexus fans).
