I have an Epia SP13000. I replaced the 40mm CPU fan with one from Silenx
and its still quiet after almost 18 months. I replaced an 80mm fan at
the same time with a Silenx and its good too.
I find however that I need to go at the fan in my power supply about
every 4 months with a damp Q-tip since it gets noisy when it's dirty.
Next time, or when the power supply dies, I will get an external power
supply in brick form.
