You can go with the 3k version; seems the most balanced of them.. a ton of airflow and still somewhat decent noise; here is a video for comparison





And here is the 5200 RPM version :O


The test:



you can check it at 3k RPM and 4250 RPM and imagine the other models =)



Good luck with the Crazy Typhoon

I'm a big fan of the AP-14 for heatsinks, but for rads the AP-15 is best. SkinneeLabs uses it for their standard fan, and Martinm210 likes it too (WC section).

in those video's especially the first (ap-15 vs ap-29), what does the first meter display?
The second one is easy, voltage, but I am unsure what he 1st one does...

edit: watched again: Amps it is, sorry my mistake
OMG that 5400 rpm one is insane it definitely moves air alright
