5x panaflos 80mm's at 24 cfm .21 dba or 2x papst 120 mm's at 55 cfm .26 dba. the pans are in a antec 1040 and the papst will be in a antec SLK3700AMB. The psu and heatsink fans will be the same in both cases.

AFAIK, the latter would be more "quieter" since dba is additive. Also since the 120mm are larger(more cfm) and slower moving(more quiet), thus it's the better choice, IMO.
