i looking for quite and good performing fan i am thinking to get Noctua fans, but i read a lot of reviews that all about this fan is a lie.

if you looking for good quiet fan Noctua 1300rpm fits the bill ,i own fiev of them but i found them to be overrated and well overprice ,if you looking for better fan than noctua for your rad i would suggest Scythe Gentle Typhoon 1800rpm(fan controller comes handy if you like thinks quiet) if you lucky to find them online;

look for fans with good static pressure

All depends on the radiator, lower FPI = lower speed fan you can get away with, higher FPI = you need a higher speed fan.

^ Yes, I'd take the Gentle Typhoons over the Noctua personally. Anyways, try with just push or pull first.
