I did not know they went up that high. their website says around 2150.
You can get the 5400rpm here:
I got my GT AP-29 off Platium Micro (who stocks Amazon for GT AP29/30/31).

Looks like they no longer got the 3K AP-29's, and obviously out of the AP-15's that everyone is looking for.

The 5400rpm ones are the GT AP-31's. They have a ring on the fans I guess to keep them stable in higher RPM operation. Apparently even if they were undervolted to do say 2150 or 1850 RPM's, they're not equal to the more well known Gentle Typhoons in regards to noise/static pressure - or least that's what I heard.

Thanks y'all. I'm in the process of reaching ehume to evaluate my set-up.

I have that very fan. It doesn't sound as loud as it registers on the SPL meter.

You haven't said what you want your fan(s) to do. A 120x38mm fan, for example, can really push air. The best is the San Ace 9G1212H1011, also available at SVC. For 25mm fans, the San Ace Silent fans run up to 2700 rpm, but they are $22 apiece at Newark. The NMB fans are pretty good. At least you can trust their specs, since they sell to industry.

But really, if noise is an issue, there are lots of ways to get noise down while getting good cooling. The potentially highest speed fans I have in my case are a pair of San Ace Silent Series PWM 9S1212P4M011's that go up to 1900 rpm (the specs say 1850, but I cherry-picked). However, since they are controlled by the mb they generally loaf along. Right now they're at 844 and 852 rpm. Actually, my fastest fan is the top intake Kaze Maru at 1150 rpm. Nice.

Sorry ehume, looks like we're conversing on two threads, I'll stick to this one.

Basically I want to replace my noisy heat sink fans with some equally powerful but quieter ones. I'd also like to re-evaluate my airflow set-up in my case for optimum efficiency.

My Spire fans are rated at 2200 RPM but run around 2400, and they cool very well. They just have no fan control option (run 24/7 at max) and are pretty noisy at around 60 dBA for both.

We can converse all over the forum. I don't mind.

I do recommend you start a thread specifically on exploring your airflow and cooling in your case. It would be more wide-ranging than just fans. And I loved your title: "Summer is coming and I've been re-thinking my airflow." It will be of interest to all.

Alright, will do! I'm off to PAINT.net to make a diagram.
