that link that i gave already on newegg is the exact Gentle typhoon that i want to recommend and thats having also a 1850 rpm model fan ... heres the link again http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835185092&nm_mc=AFC-C8Junction&cm_mmc=AFC-C8Junction-_-na-_-na-_-na&cm_sp=&AID=10446076&PID=6146846&SID=3aft9x811dbs

GT 1850 is what I have on my 360 & 120... keeps it super cool. Go with them, you won't regret it.

You can always paint them if you dont like the colour however as your looking at noctuas I presume you dont care about colour scheme biggrin.gif

well performance is what im going for or why else water cool at all? smile.gif

if that GT is not available on your place the second one that i recommend is also good as GT fans....take the COUGAR Vortex fans http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16835553002 thumb.gif .... this will perform same as GT fans.. thumb.gif

It depends on what you are trying to cool with that radiator, but this testing is very useful so you can hear the different fans on a radiator for yourself and match up the airflow levels. Airflow is all that matters on a radiator. I have used GT's before and didn't like the whiny noise quality compared to other fans.

http://martinsliquidlab.org/2013/05/07/fan-testing-round-12/

The summary is useful too. Most people would need airflow at these levels ... unless you are really loading up the radiator.

@500FPM air flow levels

The two GT fans continue to have the lowest noise level at 42-43dbA, but it is a different tone (very little air noise, mostly just a bearing sound). Interestingly the AP-45 sample seems a bit smoother here than the AP-15
The Corsair SP120 is second lowest at this performance level at about 49dBA, noise quality is ok but not ultra smooth either.
The Noiseblocker B12-3 1900RPM model may not have super low noise level at 50dBA, but by ear it actually sounds much better. It is a smoother sound quality and makes it seem like a good number and actually comparatively good as the GTs. Also interestingly the noise quality of the higher speed Noiseblocker e-loop 2400RPM doesn’t seem nearly as good as the 1900RPM slower speed brother at this performance level.
The Cougar Vortex PWM is the only one to make it this far of the Cougars and putting out around 52dBA however noise quality is rather poor with a stronger motor tick.
The Noctua and Piranha also have legs to get to this air flow level, but the noise is also higher in the 52-53dBA levels and the noise quality not very good. The Piranha also seems to have a slight motor tick at this speed.


@600FPM air flow levels

The two GT fans continue to have legs to get to this point and at their trademark low noise levels although not what I would call great noise quality. There is a rather dominating bearing noise without much air noise to mask it. Regardless, it is hard to argue with the low 46dBA noise level at these speeds.
The Corsair SP120 would take second lowest noise level at this point with about 54dBA. It is considerably higher than the GTs, but still seems to be in it’s game without any unusual noise quality issues, fairly smooth for the speed.
The B12-4 higher speed Noiseblocker E-loop also makes it this far, but noise quality dramatically reduces with a higher whine developing. Noise level is a similar 54dBA, but it sounds louder than that by ear.
The Piranha also has legs to get here, but it’s the loudest of the bunch at 58dBA and also has some noise quality issues with an undulating low frequency and some motor tick.
The Noctua and Cougar fans are not capable of this much air flow.

Really useful stuff, i agree the GT's do sound a bit whiny, the best sounding one to me is the noise blocker it has a smoother sound to it. But since i won't be running these fans at max speed except for when im running benchmarks or gaming (where the noise from the game would drown out most fan noise), i don't think the noise level at high speeds >1500rpm matter to me as much. I think the corsair fans would work better for me as at low speeds from Martin's testing there really isn't much difference, as well as the price point and availability of the corsair fans (living up here in canada), would suit my needs.
