    I was planning on getting six fans for a radiator to use as push/pull on the radiator and I was wondering how loud six fans that produce <20dB each would be?

    Also, at 1500 rpm for each fan, is the HWL GTX360 the best choice?

    Also, I heard that the EK Supreme-HF are the best waterblocks right now for the LGA 1155 platform and I was wondering which one I should get so that I don't have any corrossion?

    GTX rads are designed for high speed fans. Radiators designed for lower speeds have less fins per inch, usually 8-10.

    if you want lower noise you could try bigger fan with lower rpm it could move air nicely but leaves low noise
    for number 2 it could from the water that you use beside the material itself.

    Thank you guys. I think I am going to get a EK-Supreme HF Full Copper waterblock for my i7 2600K.

    I am also going to probably get the RX360 just because I believe it is the best performer for my fan speeds.

    What do you guys think?

    It would be hard to go wrong with either of those choices. Good luck with your new loop. You will have a great time. The worst part of water cooling is waiting for everything to show up in the mail.
