I recently did a new 5820K build in a Corsair 750D and a Corsair H90 for cooling of the CPU.
I actually mounted the H90 and it's fan in place of the third Corsair AF140L that was the exhaust.
So currently I have 2 x Corsair AF140L + 1 x 140mm Corsair fan that is on the H90 (not sure the model name)

I'd like to go quieter so what would be 3 good fans 140mm that can bring down the noise.
The Corsair H90 fan is rated 95cfm @ 35db and the AF140Ls are 64cfm @ 24db.

I wonder if 2 x Corsair AF140L in push/pull on the H90 can perform as well as the stock fan.

This fan http://www.quietpc.com/na-ds-140 seems to have same CFM as the AF140Ls but at 14db (or even 9db @ 54cfm with adapter)
