Either way you go you'll win really. It's like choosing between a Rolls Royce and a Bentley. Both will fill similar roles about equally as well and no matter what you choose, you're still rocking a car most people dream of owning.

Unrelated to the OP, but where would one find a 4-pack of the Gelid Wing's in the US? They sound like a great deal.

Own both fans, run both fans in my current rig - except that I have the Gelid Wing 14 instead of the 12...

I'd still pick the AP-15 GTs, but the Gelid Wing series definitely hold their own, and they are pretty much just as silent and move a LOT of air...and I like that the Wing 14s have a blue UV-reactive blade that is easily removable for cleaning...but having said that, the AP-15s are still king, IMO.

So if there similar in performance would it be fine to get 4 Wing 12's (just because I can get a 4pack of them cheaper then 3 AP-15's) and then 1 AP-15 as an exhaust fan?

I'd get the Wing 12s, cheaper and perhaps even better. I would, however, use a different fan as exhaust. You don't need a high pressure fan there.
