The Arctic P series are getting good feedback from some reputable users. I haven't tested them first hand yet, though, so I can't really comment more than that.
I think you are a little (a lot, really) confused about static pressure and what the ratings actually mean to you in real world usage. The Noctua iPPC fans have high rated static pressure for no other reason than that they are high rpm fans - there is absolutely no other reason, and the same goes for the Blademasters. But....are you really intending on running your fans at 3000 rpm? Of course not. Well, maybe you would if the computer was located on a different floor of your home, or you were deaf. What you need to be looking at is the PQ, or more simply put - you need to look at what fans develop the most static pressure at tolerable noise levels with a smooth sound signature at the speed you intend on using them
The chart below is the kind of information that matters, as well as the info in a review like this, which clearly shows that there is absolutely nothing special about the NF-F12 - https://www.techpowerup.com/reviews/...700_PWM/5.html
So, I am not sure what "reviews" you are looking at, but they are certainly not credible or informative.
