Default fan question 2x120mm rad 2 or 4 fans?

Ok i Have the Swiftech kit in my sig, it came with two 74cfm 36db fans. I want to get quiet fans so my system dosn't sound like a jet taking off.
The quiet fans i can find only push about 35-40cfm. was wondering if i put 4 in a push/pull arrangement would it work just as well as two high cfm fans?

I am currently running a Push-Pull set-up on my Thermochill PA120.3 and the only difference i saw from having 6 fans instead of 3 is that now i can turn all 6 fans to their lowest possible and still get the same temps\flow i used to get with 3 fans running at full-speed.

Now if you set-up 4 Silent fans on your MCR220 i really doubt that you will get the same airflow as you used to get with 2 high CFM fans. The only "real" difference it would make, IMO, is that it will allow you to turn down the silent fans (All 4) and still get the same air-flow you'd get (Or just about) with 2 silent fans working at their full speed.

Good choice. The Yate loons have a great DBA\CFM ratio.
