Default Scythe slim fans for radiators

How well do scythe slim fans perform for low fpi radiators? I'm planning on doing a silent build and I and wonder how well they perform. I know they lack static pressure, but since I am using them as pull-only, would it still be a problem?

My System Specs

Default

Static pressure is going to come into play in either push or pull config, so if they're not suitable for push, they won't be suitable for pull either. I'd vote no.

My alternatives are fractal silent series 1000rpm (non-R2) how well would they fare compared to the scythe fans?
