You want static pressure for a radiator.

I'd suggest the Corsair SP-120 Quiet Editions. Come with resistors and noise dampening rubber on the corners. I personally use corsair fans in my rig and I love them.

Edit: Noctua NF-F12's are really the best way to go if you want to drop the money on them. I just don't like the aesthetic of the brown on beige thing they got going on, and the corsair SP quiet edition fans are essentially just as good, look beautiful, and they come in two-packs which saves you a couple bucks!

The Noctua fans are ugly yes but they are well worth it so if you can like me just ignore the colors

Get whichever is cheaper/more accessible to you. You are looking at a difference of decimal degrees.

Personally I prefer gentle Typhoons. But I love the SP120s.

Go for SP120 fans if you are set on Corsair dont buy the AF120 fans not if you are going to use them on a radiator

Truth. I use an AF-120 quiet edition as an exhaust on my case, but you definitely want static pressure on a rad.
