    Quietest freehub for scalpel?

    Would like to replace my current noisy freehub with a quiet one.
    My rear hub now has Sun Ringle and Dirty flea printed on it and uses an XTR rear derailleur.

    Cannondale 2014 site has these presently listed:

    Scalpel carbon black Chris King 142x12 rear
    Scalpel carbon team DT Swiss 350 142x12 rear
    Scalpel carbon2 Mavic Crossroc 29 142x12mm rear
    Scalpel 3 SRAM X9 142x12 rear
    Scalpel 4 Formula DHG 142x12 rear

    Which one is the quietest? other suggestions?
    Thanks jimo

    I have Shimano XT-M788 on Trigger 29er and it's very quiet, much quieter than DT Swiss, Hope etc.

    It's also quite cheap and works well, rolls smoothly and has 36 points of engagement.
