Good ol' GT fans.
Or the Silverstone AP121s. Both older fans but amazing static pressure and both are quiet... More quiet than Corsair stuff. Those fans are overrated and only get praised because of Corsair. They wouldn't pass to Noctua's standards.

Agreed about them being overrated. I'll check those out, thanks! What brand are GT?

The Silverstone doesn't work well with fan filters, I tried several and they all got way louder as soon as you putted an dust filter next to it.

If you don't care about noise and looks, San Ace H101 is the best there is that doesn't require it's own PSU. If you want the GTs, Dazmodea should have some clones on his website from darkside... some euro sites gave them ow

But honestly, Corsair MLs would be fine. Most will not notice any real difference in temps even with the GTs.

Trust me, they are well worth the price! I was really impressed with them, and I haven't been a big fan of Corsair products these last few years, but these fans are all what they claim to be.

But I will say this: If price matters more to you, go with Fractal's Venturi fan series. They are pretty good and don't have weird motor noise as far as I know. But ok they might only last a few years before they do, who knows?

Agreed. Tried those Silverstone as well, they were producing quite a lot of noise even at lowest RPM

I agree with Tolagarf and can vouch for the Fractal fans, I've been sponsored the Venturis' and they are epic quiet and shift a butt tonne of air, however they only come in Black if you're wanting a touch of colour try Fractals Dynamic rage they are pretty much identical other than the anti vibration corners.

Thanks for all the help I'll look at Fractal as well, and all black is precisely what I am after.

Edit: yep those are my fans!

Edit 2: I'm actually going to replace all fans by Fractal ones: Fractal Design: Venturi High Pressure Series (PWM) 2x 120mm AIO (Venturi HP-12 PWM), Venturi High Flow (no PWM) 3x 140mm case fans (Venturi HF-14). Awesome and once again thanks for all the tips!
