I own two of the 80mm black ones, with ball bearings.
They're not particularly quiet, but they work fine at 5V.

The akasa fans in the silent series are not black, they are made of clear and orange plastic. The model number for the 120mm is AK-183-L2B. - FG

Click on "ultra quiet fans" . If you can't see black fans there, then there is something wrong with your browser or your eyesight or something
EDIT: sorry if that sounded aggressive.

spaceman,

no need to be defensive.

The clear ones and the black ones are both labeled utlra quiet fans. The clear ones are new models - have different descriptions and specs. There is no 120 mm black version, but they are all on the same page. - FG

EDIT: So you are absolutely correct.
