Which fans for radiator

Hi guys,
I have all my parts for my custom loop, only I need choose the fans to build the loop. I want a nice static presure and quiet fans, I don't care if they have or not rgb, only I want the best fans for a good price. I know the best option are the NF-A12x25PWM but on my country the price are $32.5 each with taxes.

I saw the Corsair ML120 Pro (CO-9050040-WW) for $25 with taxes.

Or which one do you recommend me?

My radiator it's a Black Ice Nemesis.

Thanks!

Personally using Corsair LL140s for unicorn spotting. Function wise. As you mentioned, Noctua would be my first stop. After that I would consider BeQuiet silent wing 3. Corsair MLs though I have only used them in 140mm.
I would approach it like this. Write a list of the 10 fans you can actually afford. Go into each one and see what you find in reviews. It's what I do. Once I am settled in a top 3 then decide based on what I can get and for what price. For example, I'd wait until there is a bank holiday or start tracking the price using price spy or something. There are discounts here and there all year round.

well I have two 240mm, a 360mm, and a 480mm hardware labs BIN radiators. in a case these radiators really need 3000RPM fans attached to them to actually work. the noctua IPPC 3000RPM fans or any other static pressure 3000RPM + fan should work fine.




I like this video because he installed slow quite fans at fist, than installed 3000RPM fans later.

The problem with that fans are to much expensive, I want a config with 240+360 but with that fans I will spend more on fans than entry loop haha

the point was having fans capable of 3000RPM's or better for those radiators.

Scythe UltraKaze 120mm CaseFan, High Static Pressure, 3-Pin 3000RPM fans work great without breaking the bank.

I use P12s PWM on my case and radiator, there is literally no need for rubber pads or any other kind of dampeners. The only noise made is from blades slashing the air, a low frequency hum that starts getting heard (not annoying, just heard) at around 1200-1300RPM.

Never used fan standoffs before. Find the standard fan rubber corners are enough. If you really want some dampening then just buy some fan dampening material and cut it out yourself and stick it on. Did this when one I went militant on 2 innocent 120mm Phantek fans. I never apologised to that noisy mofos.
