I prefer the looks of the Helix fans to GT15s as well.
I would get these off the bat, they perform close enough to AP15s and are cheaper.
If/When I rebuild my loop or what ever I will be getting these fans for sure, been rocking high speed yate loons for almost 5 years and they are still going strong. I think it's time for a fan change although I've gotten used to the noise levels of these yates already, I want to try out "quieter" fans, even if it means a little bit less performance.
Hands down I think the Helix fans in the 1650 or 1800 variety would be a good choice, or maybe even the XSPC 1650s. *both are cheaper than AP15s.
