Best fans for reasonably thick, high fpi rads, that are decently quite (10-25 decibels, but a noise that sounds reasonably pleasant. More basey, or windy is nice. No high pitched, annoying motors. Decent cfm as well, in case I decide to use it for airflow tasks. I would also like something black, white, or gray, so not a noctua, and something that would look nice. I would like something that is around a 0-27 U.S dollar price range. I am okay with being able to hear airflow, but I don't want to hear a motor whining, which is why I am not too concerned with noise. I do like a little audible response in my PC. I am a car guy so naturally I think in away like: "It makes a 'correct' noise, so it works" kind of way. I don't want it to be too loud for me to hear my stereo though. (7.1 channel with subwoofer.)
