The fin density may not be high but the sheer thickness necessitates high static pressure fans. If you do it right though, you can have a radiator that performs equivalent to "one size up" (such as a 240 Monsta giving the same performance as a regular 360).
I would not even consider anything less than a 38mm thick fan, and 6mmHg is an absolute minimum. Throw on 4 San-Ace 3000rpm fans with 12-16mmHg and you will see what the rad can do!

i have no problem using high rpm/loud fans, i will going to place the radiator outside the window, lol

err... That's probably not the best idea. Most WC parts are designed for use indoors. If you want it outside, you'll want to look for tubing and fans that are sealed and insulated and designed for use outdoors. Most computer fan ball bearings would rust outside from the humidity and most tubing would decay except maybe Norprene which is specifically designed for stuff like that.

Not to mention that it might cause condensation... Not a good idea unless you're ready to do some insulation.

About the performance of the Monsta, comparison charts here and here.
That's with single 1500rpm fan @ 5V and 12V respectively, Monsta is the lowest on the charts (pink). And top chart is with one fan and lower chart is push/pull.

Oh yeah, and another review here.
