Quiet 80mm fan?

Joduko

I'm working in a SFF case
https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07TDKCY1P/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o05_s01?ie=UTF8&psc=1

I have 2 80mm fan mounting spots, but I only have one 3 pin chassis fan connector on my motherboard.
 

I currently have a 2-pin 80mm fan from industrial application mounted and it actually manages to be louder than my ENP-7660B Flex-ATX PSU. An alternate question would be is there some kind of tiny hub I can use to just make this 2-pin fan run slower to reduce the noise that way?

Arctic P8s are great 80mm fans.

Okay I ordered one of the P8 PWM since the remaining fan connector on my motherboard is actually 4 pin. This should help with noise even further, although I wish I had some way of using the other 80mm fan mounting space without making a ton of noise.

Is there any way to get an 80mm fan powered by Molex or Sata that doesn't sound like a jet engine?

Could get like a fan splitter to use 2 fans off one header
