Update on mine; going to have to fashion a mount for the fan and radiator because the fans have a powerful spin on them. Zip ties aren't doing what I thought they were. However, performance is fantastic.

Just upgraded from an H60 to an H80 and I am seeing decent results.

During BF:BC2 I was hitting mid 50's with the H60.
With the H80, I have yet to exceed 45C.

I bought my H60 from bestbuy for $85. Returned it and bought the H80 from Newegg for $91 plus free shipping.

There are other places where you can get just as good or better deals for them.

I used the stock fan as a shroud for my setup. Just clipped the four mounting points the fan plops out, leaving the body to mount between the Pusher and the Rad. Don't need one for the Puller but it's slightly better to have one.

The fan comparison in your sig rates the high speed scythe about the same or marginally better than any loons they tested.

However, they are power hungry and they do cost quite a bit more. They rate the Scythe Gentle Typhoon series (1000 RPM- 1800 RPM) as "dominating in CFM/dbA ratio. At $15-20 it's not the cheapest, but a real amazing fan on a radiator". The high speed ones we're using got similar ratings as the loons did at a cost of about $9. The loons were given "my pick for budget fan. They do pretty much the same as every other fan below 1000RPMs at a fraction of the price of around $6. Generally a very good all around fan and amazing value." (that's for the D12SL-12 and D12SM-12). So they look like good stuff for sure.

I'm was thinking about the gentle typhoons since they're available locally, but what I have seems to be working good for now.

You wouldn't see a big difference in buying Yates or even GTs (aside from lower noise levels), despite your slipstreams having low Static Pressure.

The 2-pin barebone (no tachometer) 2150RPM GTs were going for $9 a pop in the group buy, so if you got in on that, you'd have one of the best Static Pressure/dbA (not CFM/dbA) radiator fans for cheap.

I prefer tacs myself. All my case fans are connected to a fan controller and I like being able to see the speed they're running at. I really miss that when letting the H100 control the fans.

My H100 fans will eventually be controlled by the Corsair Link Commander so I will enjoy the added benefit supplied by the tac. I guess it's not really such a big deal but I prefer them that way. As you said, the difference wouldn't be all that much anyway. Also can't really say about the static pressure of the 1900 RPM Scythes since it doesn't seem to be listed anywhere. Also the actual testing performed at the previously supplied link rated them as good as the loons, so it can't be that low.

If I was worried I'd just pick up some gentile typhoons which are available locally and supposedly are "dominating in CFM/dbA ratio...a real amazing fan on a radiator".
I suppose you can say since the static pressure is not listed it must be low but since I was getting great results using them on an H70 I don't think they're bad fans. They are more than adequate as pull fans for the H100.

Installed my H60 with 2 CM XtraFlow fans in p/p yesterday and started testing it. So far I'm very impressed with the results! (Need I say that this beats the socks off a stock cooler)

Idle temps are down from 31c (@3.3GHz) average to 25c (@4.0GHz) average and load temps went from 80c (@3.3GHz) to high 50's (@4.0GHz). Not sure what RPM the fans are running at, but using a fan controller and set to approx. 50%. All this with an ambient of 17c.

I can most definitely recommend these coolers.

Added a shroud to my setup, though I haven't seen any differences in temps, so I might decide to remove it since it's preventing me from putting on a side case fan. Then, I went from rear intake to rear exhaust and saw an increase of 5C-7C in idle/load temps since my gpus are running 100% 24/7 and their heat passes through the H50.

Unfortunately for my setup, exhaust also makes motherboard & northbridge temps higher, due to the heat of my 5770s not being able to escape through my now missing side case fan.

For Antec 902/900 users with 2 120mm front intakes and the big 200mm as exhaust, I recommend either front(requires a bit of work and/or modding) or rear intake for the best results. For the side fan, I would have it as exhaust if you have gpus that exhaust heat in your case (non-reference cooling) and as intake if you have gpus that exhaust heat out to the back (reference cooling).

Its only 25 x 120 rad... even though the CFM is awesome, there would be a hellava backwash from such force and alot of turbance noise. IMO, overkill.
