You can say what you want, it's a good performance if used correctly, with very little and acceptable compromises.
Also OP used f series fans, which are completely different from p series.
.....suggest they are very good for radiators.
From GN video you can see noise at maximum RPM, and from the other video, while it might not be the most accurate testing in the world, it does show the fan's behavior. Also i did test my sw3 on air cooling radiators and seeing his results, makes me think he is in the right.
And OP's findings with max speed on stock fans against case fans i find it ridiculously untrue, since everyone i red, and everyone i know that did the mod, got drastic improvements. There's also the possibility that he is right, but F9 fans are probably one of the worst you can use for modding, where's p12 are some of the best.
To be honest i never liked the idea of using 90mm fans for GPU modding, because the fan blades dont cover completely the GPU heatsink.
These are 120 and you can see the fan it's covering the whole radiator area.
