Default H100i v2, SP120 PWM or 3-pin?

I want to buy the Corsair Hydro Series H100i v2, but I don't like the fans that came with it.

Should I buy:
  1. Corsair SP120 Quiet Edition PWM
  2. Corsair SP120 Quiet Edition non-PWM (3-pin)

What is the best configuration for this case?.

My System Specs


Assuming you're using the incorporated fan controller you should be looking for a 4 pin replacement.

According to a Corsair employee (on Reddit I believe) the V2 is simply a rebranding of the 100i GTX so you can get your info on the unit by checking out reviews on the GTX.

For AIO coolers stick with PWM fans so that it can adjust to the temps as required.
