For me, It's come down to the dark knight II or the Hyper EVO 212 and I'm looking for recommendations on better fans. I want to use two fans for push-pull configuration.

-I can spend up to $80ish but the Noctua NH-D14 is too big otherwise I'd probably do that. No liquid cooling please.
-Will be put on the Haswell i5 4670K
-So far I am looking at getting two of these fans for push-pull:

The Hyper EVO 212 is, of course, a great option for the price. I've heard static pressure fans are also great. I'm open to suggestions for fans on either the Dark Knight II or EVO 212.

Right now I'm leaning towards the Dark Knight II with the fans I linked because it's in within my budget and almost all reviews I've read come to the conclusion that the Dark Knight II is better. If you strongly believe the EVO 212 is that much better, then please convince me! :) 

Thanks

Take a look at the Corsair SP120 fans. They are design to work with radiators. Reviewers say close to the Noctuas at half the pric. A pair runs about $30.

Those are the exact static fans I had in mind. Thanks
