those fans are expensive and not that great AND LOUDDDD, try yate loons (and try to use all fans with same company/model, so one fan isn't better than the other which will affect unbalanced air flow)

im on the frozencpu and lookin at the specs the CFM for the fans you posted IS HIGHER BUT at a price of 20-25? thats ridiculous and you need 4 fans of that which is going to be expensive

can you gimme link to that yate loon fan , i cant find it.
note: when comparing fans, look at the CFM and the dbs (noise rating) then price, depends if u have money or not, but 20-25 dollars for one fan is quite pathetic :D 

also do you care for noise levels? if not there are much more options for you

that CM fan is better than the aerocool, but it is louder (look at CFM)

Noise isn't a problem but when I'm playin games and watching movies I don't want to here whirring from the fans I meen price isn't a concern I'm willing to spend around 100$ I try to keep Dba under 40 and cfm 100 at least

These are the ones you want, they move a nice amount of air and are semi-loud.

It wont bother you if you have aspeakers or headphones.

If noise is the issue then get a fan-controller, if noise is your friend then you have nothing to worry about....

My fans are loud when I game or when I bench.... I like the sound of my fans roaring cause that normally means something fun is going on at that moment.... When im just typing or surfing the web I crank down the fans just a bit but my case is never silent, too many fans to be silent....

I have the Panaflo H1A 120mm Hi-Speed Fan (BX) w/ RPM Sensor (FBA12G12H1BX), and I can confirm that is is a s loud as as a hovercraft taking off during Prime95 or Linx....

However, My I7 is running at 75 C when before it was running at 85 C...

I have it set up so the default TRUE S-Flex runs at fullish speed (it is not loud at all), and this 100 CFM monster kicks in 100% when the CPU temps goes past 65
