Question Quiet Fans

There was talk in one of the other forums of quiet (12dB) fans.

Could someone please let me know what these were (brand, model, size etc).

Silent fans are also very common for computers and this link:


is to Zalman which create very silent (20 dB) fans for computer cases and processors. Some of them I think have control circuits and are variable speed.

Default 10V

Power the fans with only 10V is another suggestion...
