That's my issue as well -

Assuming they are no longer available what are the best next in line? I'm going to check out the benchmarks when I get home but didn't know if there has been a 'forum wide' agreement on a suitable replacement for the ap 15's.

Sounds silly to say, but you won't replace the ap-15 with what's on the market. There is a reason why these bad boys are cream of the crop biggrin.gif
You can just buy a higher speed Gentle Typhoon fan and run it at lower RPM or get the lower speed ones like AP-11 / 12 / 13 or 14

Frozencpu has AP-14 in stock

My two cents coming from using many different fans in search for of the ultimate performance/noise ratio....
I whole heartily recommend Cougar fans. They have a 'focused' airflow that seems perfect for radiators in my opinion, they push tons of air and are super quiet also. Their only downside is that the fan blades are made from brittle plastic and break easily (like if you accidently stick you finger in it when it's working).

I have tried various coolermaster fans, Noctua fans, gentle typhoons, xiggys, and a lot of others.

My favorites in order-
Cougar
Noctua
GT' s



Noctuas are higher quality but "Better than Noctua NF-F12's?", performance wise (better airflow and quieter) YES
