Tell me your Opinion about this review from hardware.fr?

http://www.hardware.fr/articles/874-35/recapitulatif-db-a-vs-cfm.html

I was about to buy new fan coolers for my rig to replace the Stock. I come to realize i'm very sensitive to noise, and the H100i are getting me a bit annoyed. Maybe not so much at gamming, but they does annoyme during office or webrosing even at 60%.

I was thinking to replace for SP120 High Perfomance but r i saw this review and it says, that fan sucks compared to many others, according to the curve Decibels vs CFM. So those frenchs have me thinking.

If i believe this review, i think i like the style of Xigmatek 1251. They seems to be pretty similar to Gentle Typhoon but with better looking??

Im sorry bad link, edited.

The link is the 140mm found round up. And the corsair fares well from that graph.

This link is for the 120mm, but it's for case airflow. The AF120 performs well too, the SP120 not so well, but that's not what it's designed for.

So I don't know, point to the right review, or the right fan.

BTW, I'm not a fan of the Corsairs. I would probably go noiseblocker, Scythe SlipStream, Gentle typhoon... That type of thing. Maybe even Noctuas.

Take in mind. They test both situation Restricted and No restricted (radiator).

They are using the SP120 Quite edition though. What can be the difference between Quite and HP version. I think maybe only the RPM. So we can conclude higher RPM even higher noise on Corsair fans.
