Default black ice SR1 radiator fan help!

hey guys, gonna be buying 3x quad 120mm SR1's in the near future. my theme is black/red, looking at getting bitfenix spectre RED LED 120mm fans for all of them, they seem to have good specs, 1.64mm H2O. or... i was looking at getting AP121's (silverstone air penetrators) slightly higher fan noise but also slightly higher mmH2O, seem to channel the air into a sort of column which im thinking would be good for the radiator? but at $25 a pop would get pretty expensive.

any other suggestions??? anything would help
cheers all

Scythe gentle typhoons. Really good and really low noise. There's also these 55mm triebwerks but they're more exepensive and really hard to find. Dazmode doesn't have the newest version of the quiet version of the fan but it does carry the monster 200+ CFM triebwerk.

I like my NoiseBlocker PL-2s. I have twelve of them on three 120.4 SR-1 Rads :-)

I own that radiator :D Nothing performs as well as the GT AP-14. The AP-15 will not drop temperature much unless your radiator is stressed. You can always use a push/pull configuration; one fan for performance and the other for looks. Check out Daz's HAF build, he does exactly that.

I just got some of these in today

SilenX Corporation - Effizio Quiet Fans

Will try them out tonight

And I have some Koolance 102CFm fans and they work really loud but are loud unless you have them on a fan controller
