Best aftermarket Fans for the Corsair H80??

I love my H80:) It provides excellent cooling for my 2600k. EVen when running over 1.34V through the cpu it keeps temps under 65c at full load after hours of Prime. I DO NOT like how flipping loud this thing is! I actually underclocked and undervolted my 2600k to 4ghz from the 4.5 I like to run at because I was tired of hearing those god forsaken fans on full blast!

What I'm looking for is someone to point me to specific fans that....

1)Have just as good if not better CFM than the stock H80 fans
2)Are quieter than the stock fans
3)And that work correctly with the H80 fan controller

Any help much appreciated:)

  2. yes noctua nf-f12s are great but if you dont like the colour (i do though), you can get some sycthe gentle typhoons

    I am actually very interested in these Cougars you mention. When I look at the specs it says they move "70.5 CFM / 119.8 CMH"....Does this mean they move 70.5Cfm at full blast?? Or is it 119.8 Cfm at full blast? The "CMH" stat confuses me because IDK what it means.
