Worth mentioning pretty much all fans will get annoying if you allow them to hit their max. I don't see a reason to go for silent/low rpm fans when you can get good higher rpm pwm fans and limit the max fan speed. Those Noctua's are really good fans but make sure to limit them to 70 - 80% otherwise they'll sound like jet engines.
I nearly went and bought $ sound dampening material, when i found it was possible to tweak the fan speed in the bios a few weeks back. No need to hit 100% fan speed when not necessary. Great advice.

Melcar Agree with others on the push/pull. Not worth it on a CLC.

If you don't care much about looks, the ML140/120 two packs can't be beat for the price. I have not used the fans, but Thermalbench (which I regard very highly) has them among their best. Many people don't like the fans however.

So, upgrading all this stuff ... it's going to be painful ...

4 x 140mm Airflow fans ( bottom and top of the case for intake/exhaust )
4 x 140mm Air Pressure fans ( front of the case, push/pull for x62 )
2 x 120mm Air Pressure fans ( rear of the case, push/pull for Seahawk X )

I was looking for the existing fans in the market ... without RGB ... I was thinking about the Noctua's Industrial or the Silent Wings 3, but i'm more into the SW3 for the price difference.

Any pieces of advice here? Other fans that are worth considering?
You should be more into the SW3 due to the performance difference. The Noctua iPPC don't stack up as the charts @BroadPwns pointed out show. And, as noted by @ThePook , push/pull on a CLC is pretty much a waste of time that does nothing but add noise.

And you need to not think in terms of "airflow" and "air pressure" fans. What you need to look at is the PQ relative to the application. Since your case is going to have some restriction (in most cases equal to a rad), the things marketed as "airflow" fans usually can't overcome it to move a proper amount of air.

The Pook push/pull on an AIO is a waste, the rad isn't nearly thick enough and the fins aren't dense enough for it to be needed. I ran push/pull on my H115i for a bit and went back to push only.

I like my NF-A14 iPPC-3000s (but I rarely run them more than 20-30% unless I'm benching) but they're not cheap. The Bitfenix Specre Pros, Silent Wings, EK Vardar, NB eLoops, and Corsair ML Pro fans are good too.
