what fans do you use for that low rpm? Been looking at Vardar,

I read that whole article and review and on paper it shure looks like the SE slim rads really don't deliver.
But then i watched this vid, EK SE, PE and XE comparison
and the difference seems lesser in real use.
HWLabs i cant buy here in Sweden, i have to buy from another country. Just EK and Alphacool over here.
I figured out that my CPU and GPU overclocked need about 528w in rad space.
I calculated the "worst case" scenario with GPU @ 1.3v. Stock w is 297w peak draw. And if i'm not mistaking you calculate 297w * 1,3v = 386w. Wheres 1.3 is the OC voltage on the card.
Now i dont know if my card can handle 1.3v, but i like to calculate for more overhead then i need.
And according to that review on xtremerig two SE 360 would not be enough for that.
I figured out that to PE radiators will actually fit with 2 mm margin.
But then i watched the video that says its stupid to get the PE over SE if your going for low RPM fans.
So now im really confused
