*cough* why are you shopping for computer parts on a general online shop and an auction server? No computer parts shops around?

I like the Akasas but they cost nearly as much as Noctua Redux fans.
I find it that unless a fan clicks it doesn't matter what brand it is. Even the stock FDs are not that loud with the clicking but they are louder than cheap Gelids I have due to it.
Pick what ever fan you like.
I didn't want to spend $30 even on all the fans together so I bought two Gelids $5 each, works, long warranty, quiet, does the job. Sure no crazy static pressure but I ain't pushing air through rads or grills anyway so why go buy $15 Akasas or Noctuas.

Me neither, so shopping on Amazon is actually expensive and have never bought anything from there. Ebay, sure, mostly tiny cheap things from China for hobbies.
Computer parts, local computer shops, most countries and even regions have some just like US has Newegg, microcenter, etc.

Those Gelids. I got them for 99CZK a piece, which right now is 4USD spot on. But the Akasa is 317CZK a piece ~ 13USD +shipping (5USD).

Akasa has a distributor/shop locator.
This is the fan. Or the 12cm, or the yellow Viper which runs faster if you want faster.

i'm running seven phanteks ph-f140xp fans in my arc xl. they are very quiet at 20% RPM (low load) and not unpleasant at 100% (dissipating 800W+). are they more silent than the stock fans? no. but they push a heck of a lot of air through radiators and filters at the same noise level! (the stock filters and grilles on the arc xl are comparable to a radiator in terms of restriction. it's pretty bad.)

only one of my fans has a bit of a click at low speeds. it was a little annoying in open air on the bench, but in the case, you really have to stick your ear up to the intake to notice it. i would recommend these fans for sure.

Thought I'd just post a quick shot of my Arc Midi R2 build.

For my Noctuas - yes
in terms of being able to lower the rpm and still being able to cool my components at same or even lower temps - yes

Was it pricey - very, but it was well spend for use with restrictive filters and in my case a radiator..

As mentioned above - if you don't have a rad to consider, go with what you can get your hands on, it seems that most companies these days have caught up with the game now...

Just to drop a few names i have experience with real quick;
Silverstone "airpenetrators"
Enermax "cluster"
Arctic "f4" (bit loud - but efficient)
Corsair Silent series
Cooler master Silencio (new fan)

If you don't want the hazzle of installing and using a fan controller - get a splitter for fractal's build in one - and maybe a nzxt grid to split the control voltage
- this way you can practically buy what ever you can ger your hands on and not worry
