For those of you who like silence, SPCR was also pleased with the Noctua 120mm fan. SPCR also did a second 120mm fan comparison here. Here's a link to SPCR's recommended fans - Noctua is currently at the top.
For those on a budget though, I'm not aware of any better deal than the Yate Loon 120mm fans.

I love Noctua cooling products. It's all I use inside my PC and it is as close to silent as possible.
