    I don't really care for noise levels but i do want them to have PWM and they mustn't sound like jet engines when turned up to full. Basically as long as my GPU on max RPM is louder then I don't have a problem with the noise. Also I hate whirring and motor noises the sound of air is fine but buzzing or clicking or anything like that isn't. The fans I'm currently considering are these: http://www.akasa.com.tw/update.php?t...model=AK-FN072 because if those specs are true then they are perfect in color and noise.

    You want high static pressure fans for radiators.
    Like the Corsair Air Series SP series fans (SP for static pressure)
    or the Noctua NF-F12
    or whatever has a high static pressure.
