Which fan sized PSU for quietness please ?

Can anyone tell me if a Power Supply Unit with just one 120mm fan will be quieter than the True380s PSU which comes with the Antec Sonata and has just one smaller exhaust fan ?

Or is the noise difference negligable i.e. virtually the same ?

There doesn't seem to be noise decibel specs(dBA)on the Antec site for any of there PSUs.

My current machines are in Sonata cases with the standard, as supplied, PSU. The CPU has a Zalman cooler with a 90mm fan and there is one 120mm case fan. The cases are fitted with the Quiet PC sound insulation kit for the Sonata case.

The machines are whisper quiet and I'm actively looking to replacing the other machines a little more quickly then previously planned.
