NF-F12 Industrial 3000RPM

I'm getting new fans for my radiator and I'm going for the Noctua Industrial fans. The NF-F12 Industrial 2000RPM is 29.7db but also has 3.94mm/h20, while the 3000RPM version is 43.5db, but has a 7.63mm/h20. Now I really want performance, BUT is 43.5db really loud? And if I were to run this fan at 2000RPM would it only be 30db, or would it be different?
Which one is the better choice? They're both the same price.
I know for a fact that the 2000RPM version is quieter than my stock H100i fans. So is that extra 3.69mm/h20 worth the 13.8db jump?

  1. Yes, 43.5db is really loud. I suggest you don't buy it. Or atleast buy it from somewhere that you have the option of returning it in case you dont want that much noise.

    So would you suggest the 2000RPM one's then? Or do you think that if I put it the speed at 2000rpm then would it be good?

    I can't really answer that question. But I had a few 36db fans in my computer at one time, and my ears actually started to hurt. Hope that helps.
