Good silent airflow fans.

I'm going to migrate my system into a new case either this year or next year and I want to make it as quiet as I possibly can. Right now when my system is under load it can get pretty loud. So what are some good fans you guys recommend? I know Noctua and Be Quiet! are good brands.

Corsair ML maglev fans are the most quiet fans under high RPM, but they are also quite costly for kitting out a case completely.

What are your specs and which components are too noisy?

I recently swapped  6  Corsair ML's over to 6 LL's and honestly struggle to notice the difference audibly.. That's with 3 on the AIO 2 x 140 top and a 120 rear with the whole system sitting within arms reach...

Case is a Corsair 450D, I7-6700K, Corsair H115i (though I might switch to air cooling), 16 GB of G.Skill RAM, GTX 1080 and Corsair 750w PSU. Tthe case fans and AIO fans are what is causing the noise.

Why are you thinking of switching to air cooling? Have you tried lowering fan speeds?

@WoodenMarker I was thinking that since I'm migrating to a new case I may want to try air cooling. But it's just a thought. I have not tried messing with the fan speeds, but even then the stock case fans get pretty loud no matter what I think.

Most fans are loud at high or max rpm. Most quiet fans are meant to be turned down to low rpm anyway and can go higher rpm and be noisy if needed. If you want your system to be quieter, you'll probably have to adjust fan speeds either way.
