The Airflow from the top of the case and orientation of the motherboard will make for optimum airflow that should yield better results than in reviews while maintaining the quietness.
just a word of advice. The NF-F12s are significantly louder than the S12 fans.

I don't have enough experience with other fans to say it is objectively loud, but it still is much louder than what you would expect from Noctua.

I sincerely recommend going with the S12 or P12/14 fans. If you insist, only use the f12s for your cpu cooler.

2 f12s were SIGNIFICANTLY louder than the pump on the h80.
