  1. 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
  2. All depends on the radiator, lower FPI = lower speed fan you can get away with, higher FPI = you need a higher speed fan.

    you be fine with noctua's 1300 rpm is very comfortable i have them on XSPC RX240(8FPI)and EK-XT 240 but if you own fan controller get something around 1600-1800rpm

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