    I've seen good reviews for these new Corsair fans being used for radiator duty (they're designed for high static pressure) and are also a great deal - this 2-pack for $24 (single price $18) These are the ones included with the new H100i and H80i, if I'm not mistaken. Corsair Air Series SP120 High Performance Edition ...

    Any preference on noise? Those Corsair fans do very well, but they are pretty noisy.

    I have those corsair SP120Q fans on both of my radiators and there is no noise to be heard and the performance is quite impressive

    The Corsair sp120 2350rpm fans not noisy? I find that hard to believe. I had 3 on my rad, and the noise was too much for me. My pc is on my desk right next to me, so maybe that's why it was loud... I'm using GTs now, and they are much quieter: 22dba vs 35dba

    They are also half the static pressure of the Coolermaster SickleFlow's. Static pressure is what matters on radiators. All they are is a well shaped low speed fan.

    There are several colors of them as well

    Computer Hardware, Cooler Master, Case Fans, 120m...

    That is an awesome setup, very space conscious.

    If you want performance get delta's. I recently have been looking at swiftech helix.

    Thanks visit my thread so we stop crapping ex's

    Lol very much so. A lot of planning went into that particular setup.

    Nidec (OEM for most scythe fans), Delta, Panaflo and San-Ace all produce high end fans. I have a set of Delta's as well as Nidecs and to be honest even with similar ratings the Nidecs are quieter and undervolt a ton better.

    Sleeve bearing fans that tick undervolted...I have a couple in my RF build that I picked up cheap a long while back. If you keep them above 8v normally they do ok.
