Good fan for enclosed cabinet?

I will be keeping my "media" pc/nas in a closed cabinet about 20x20x16 inches.  It's just a Linux running on an ancient phenom 2, so it doesn't need much, just to keep the air from getting stagnant.  I threw an old 80mm fan on the back I had lying around but it's very loud and want something quieter.  I'd like to keep it 80mm so I don't have to cut a new hole.  Recommendations for a nice quiet fan that will move enough air?

Ok thanks.  That's kind of what I was gravitating towards just looking at newegg/amazon.  What's the difference in the A8 vs the R8?  Mostly lower noise?

Better static pressure, air flow and lower noise.

do you know how to cut a wire?

 

you could run the fan you have at a lower voltage

Are you exchanging air at all or just trying to circulate it while sealed?
