Well 100% fans youre going to get wind noise. The ML bit basically eradicates any motor noise, it doesnt make them 100% silent which is a common misconception.

Ive got Vardars in RRR and the ML's in the GPU bench rig so Ive done a side by side and the ML's are quieter while delivering the same cooling performance.

Ok so it looks like EK Vadars or these new ML fans. I've really not had the best experience with my SP fans but seeing how everyone says they're much better built I probably should atleast consider them. I run dual reference cards in a case with little airflow so I can put up with a bit of noise under load..

Just keep the RPMs low, after a certain point, it just makes more noise that its performance is worth. I like mine at ~1000RPM.
