Alternatively, what is the best silent fan for it?
You will have 2 much heat IMO..these fans are pretty quiet

Silent fan. you really need to move the heat away from the PM even at a slower quieter rate

Alright. Is a Megahalem with a silent fan actually better than the Noctua U12P 1366 with its 2 fans at low rpm though?

Boy it's hard to decide!

I will be adding pics very soon
I had that problem too, the mounting plate hole was drilled at an angle. I had to use a round file and file it so the backplate screw could get through the bracket in its entirety.

No, just one 120x25mm fan only. You need to buy the 120x38mm fan clips separately.

Would this Yate Loon 38mm fan be ok?

Yate Loon D12SL-12D 1350RPM
Yates are good fans. If you want better temps, get the medium speed Yates.

You can always zip-tie the 38mm fan to the 25mm fan clip. Another guy on here did that. It works great
