You could use a Fan controller like this one to help wih the noise of the fans.
What I have been doing in most of my builds is to install a controller and 4 case fans and with a room temp of around 70f to 75f I can keep all the fans on low and still stay cool with a lot less noise. This seems to work even when I stay with a stock hsf. So as long as your not using them tornado fans or something similar that produce way to much noise to begin with it should really help

Right now all that matters is keeping my system as cool as possible to get the best performance.

Look and compare the cfm of any case fan you are interested in the higher the more air it will move.

120mm in general are quite a bit louder then 80mm fans.
I disagree, in general yes but you can spin a 120mm at a lot less rpm than a 80mm and still move the same or more air.
Rpm of the fan is what creates noise so the idea here is to spin the fan slower with less noise and still move the same amount of air.
A 92mm is avalible too but I forgot to mention them earler.

i personally have a scantily clad woman sitting next to my PC at all times waving a palm frond
Any idea where I can get one?
I'll check out those Coolermaster and Thermaltake fans, LED isn't too much of a deal for me since my case doesn't have a window. But it can't hurt.
Suprisingly, the two Antec fans my case came with are extremely noisy. Now that I think of it, I have had alot of problems with Antec. The PSU bracket was bent on my case, their fans are noisy, and the front cd hatch latch snapped pretty quickly for no reason. Maybe it's just my case, normally I hear Antec doesn't make shoddy products.
