Slipstream vs Yate slims

Hey guys. I have a question regarding my setup. Currently I have a couple Scyth Slip Steams on my Swiftech 2x120 radiator. I figured high cfm would work the best, but after a bit of reading about this 'static pressure' mumbojumbo I'm questioning the performance I'm seeing.

So, without recommending me any other fans, unless 120 thins, I'm talking specifically about the Slip Stream compared to this specific Yate Loon 120x20mm fan:
Yate Loon 120x20mm
Slip Steam

The reason I'm looking at that fan in particular, is I hear Yate's are supposed to have some very good static pressure compared to the Slip Steam, and as is with the Slip Steams, my graphics card nearly rests on top of them so I need a little extra clearance for some airflow, that's why I am looking at the thinner Yate's.

Thanks in advance.

Take my case for instance, when I hear things like Thermaltake, Zalman, Koolance, or Slipstreams in the same sentence as water cooling, I am "conditioned" to feel a sense of disgust ranging anywhere from annoyed confusion to nausea. Maybe he is conditioned when reading Slipstream to simply ignore everything else.

im the same anymore. i hate slip streams.

but why not get some medium speed yates. or fans like s flexs
