Default silent fans

Is a high dBA on a fan quieter than a lower dBA or is a low dBA quieter than a high dBA?

8 dBA is quieter, but to be honest, they're both quiet. What 2 fans are you considering?

Get either a case where it has a manual fan controller where you can slide a thing to increase speed or decrease, so if idle, let it be less then when you like go bf3 or something, or get an intelligent fan system like fan xpert or fan xpert 2 to control your fan so if your CPU temp is N, then the fan rpm is X.
