so i know the rads i want.. now what are the best fans for those rads? i thought those noctua fans i posted on the first page are good (or so i was told by a friend) but if anyone can give me a better suggestion that would be great. Just know that i am looking for quiet fans but high pressure fans at the same time :)

Just got some Corsair SP120s High Performance edition fans...
They are so much louder than my cougars but move much more air. Dropped temps about 3-4C folding with my Kuhler 620 in push/pull.

+1 as well for Gently Typhoons. I prefer the 1850RPM ones used with a fan controller. Can turn them down and they are dead silent, or turn them up to have the best temps.

well i won't be using any sort of controllers for the fans but it look like the gentle typhoons are the ones most people suggested... so i guess i will go with them.

Here's a thought. A high static pressure fan does no good on the pull side in a push pull configuration. Better off with a high cfm fan on the pull side I think.
