I too have both 120mm and a 140mm Noctuas. They are all equally quiet. If black is a must, I hear Scythe Gentle Typhoons are very quiet (grey blades though ), looks like only 120mm, but various speeds.

I looked at them, but their airflow isn't as good.

Also, about the video. It was helpful, thanks for the link .
I'm just gonna put it out there though that I cant stand that guy he is unable to be to the point, he always has half hour long videos with stupidly long intros that I personally dont care about and all the information is dragged out into what forms a painful video to watch...not to mention his pronunciation of the letter "h" What he needs to do is write down bullet points prior to the video on what he feels he needs to cover, and then cover them and them only without 20 minutes of pointless data usage

I put two of them Scythe GT 120mm 1850rpm in a push/pull on a H80 the other day for a friend, and let me tell you they ain't that quite @ 1000rpm they make more noise than the Apache fans and performance wise are the same. At full speed they are to much for me, as i love silence.
So he then sent them back and got 2 Akasa FN058.

I am only 2ft away from his case and i can tell you now, the push/pull Akasa Apache @ 1000rpm
can not be heard. so he is happy


you have to remember that ones silence is anothers loud
