Umm depends on what fans you want search new egg for fans and they will give you dba readings. Anything between 15-20 is extemly quite for a fan. And 20-25 is also very quiet.

The quietest cpu coolers run from 20-25.

Honestly you must not know what a silent system sounds like.. Most average fans are completely silent.
