Delta AFB1212SHE fans hooked to a Corsair Commander Pro via these all day. You can also use the breakout whips connected to your PWM motherboard headers if you like to save $70. At half speed, they are quiet and still produce 7.2mm H2O static pressure.

I know these are not typical suggestions, but I look for function and value. With all the crypto mines parting out, those fans can be had for cheap. Another plus is that they are RGB free and are rated for 70000 Hrs @ 40°C.

With that kind of fan power, you can set a panic point in your temp curve to run them up to 100% knowing that 151CFM at 14.5mm H2O will take care of most heat issues.

Don't get the GTR. It only works well at very high speeds (2000-3000), but is pretty bad a lower speeds.
The GTS is the best slim radiator and the GTX is one the best thick radiators. It scales very nice with fan speed. The SR2 is optimized for low fan speeds, but isn't any better than the GTS. Only get it if you want a thick rad for looks and low fan speeds or need the multi ports. Otherwise GTS or GTX.

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.

Yeah....the little girl hentai avatar is really creeping me out....

Good stuff, really appreciate the time. I'd have to limit searches to reputable sites with actual data instead of just words.
