I need some advise on fans for my 480GTX RAD

I currently have 4 Scythe Kaze 3000

Here is what I need:

Good CFM
Not too Loud (I have a recording studio, so under 20dba
RPM, don't really care, but I'm currently running my 3000 at around 1100, just because of the noise.

I need the best choice for this rad, no shroud btw.

I really like the gentle typhoons, also yates have been known to be great!

Any advise would be great and I will give rep+

AP-15s are great if you can find them but they seem to be sold out everywhere or are 20+$ per fan. Scythe makes other fans that are worth looking at or Yate Loons are a good choice as well. If you can wait for the AP-15s to be in stock somewhere you cant go wrong if they are under 20$ otherwise forget it and look at the ultra kazies or high rpm yate loons. Unfortunately the GTX sucks at cooling under 1800rpm. Also i think Delta and Panflow make a decent fans with high rpms but its noisy iirc.

Another vote for AP-15's, excellent performance for the sound level they output (28db), but like the above post, they are hard to find due to high demand, I'm lucky I brought 14 of them when they were in stock at Jabtech.

Edit: I had the High Speed Yates before I got the GT's, IMO they dont push as much air and are much louder.

The Gentle Typhoons are good for that radiator(push-pull would be great), because its really hard to find something else for them.
I would go with the San Ace fans, but undervolted because of the noise. They are expensive, but perfect for the GTX rads.

ok, then I think I'm sold on GT's should I just go with the ap-15? or go a step lower? I'm running a fan controller, and will prob be turning these down a little anyway, and the ap-14 might be easier to find.

What does everyone think?

Actually the GTX BI series are known to work better with high speed fans. Therefore, you already have one of best fans for that particular rad. Over 2k RPMs fans is what you are looking for. Now if you really want the best look for gentle typhoons 3k RPMs.
Something like this: http://jab-tech.com/Scythe-Gentle-Ty...9-pr-4785.html

If not, GT-AP15 is what you are looking for. That's what I put in my GTX BI 360.

This graph explains alot:
