Well do you want/care about an Airplane beside you? Or are you more the silent type?

Silence, don't care too much about it being cool, my 212 evo keeps the CPU cool enough

 For silence, i'd go with Noctua over any other fans to be honest. I only asked about the Airplane thing, because i can suggest higher preforming fans, for about the same price, but they are nooooiiiiisssssy!

You will still know in the back of your mind that your case has spinning turds in it.

Guy. Just stop. Noctua fans may not be the most aesthetically pleasing fans in the world, but they preform amazingly for the amount of sound they put out.

I wasn't going to suggest Noctua fans.

Be Quiet! SilentWings 2 are without a doubt the best performing and quietest offering on the market at the moment. While the Noctuas are pretty close they have a good deal more motor noise than the SilentWings 2. Another possible plus is that they're all black, so if you don't like the Noctua colour scheme that's not a problem either.

I never seem to think of Be Quiet! Likely because i've never used any of there products before. Thanks for reminding me!

Since Noctua offers only one 140mm fan series atm I'd say pick A14 PWM. The A15 is on my cooler and I can't hear it over GPU coolers.

I have the NF-A14s in the front and they are perfect. Super quiet on 5v/7v setting so you won't even notice them.

I'm using three NF-A14 FLX and I am more than satisfied with them, the only problem you're going to face with them is, that they have a pretty high starting voltage of like 6 volts or something crazy like this? So, they actually didn't start, when I was running them at 5V. However they can be throttled down to 5V :D
