I have the first SilverStone AP fan(AP121) the new ones pushes a bit more air, but a lower pressure. At the time 1 NF-P12 was better then 1 AP121 on my heatsink.

The new AP122 looks like SilverStone's stock(FT03 fans) 120mm fans(made by Globe IIRC) with the AP grille added to it. They are not bad fan, I have 3 of those an they seem to work OK with decent noise levels. Again, some of Noctua's fans are better, but at a price.

The Cougar(but I have not used them, keep an eye out, they come on sale) is rated at more CFM and higher pressure. Both good things for a RAD.

Just as a suggestion, Noctua makes great fans, quiet and powerful, a little more spendy than most though.

For Noctua.

NF-P12(The P is for pressure :)  ) had always been my goto fan, but they have some new ones out like the NF F12. Both come in a 4 pin PWM version(IE NF-P12-PWM).

Do not use the NF-S12 on a rad as it has very little pressure. It is a low noise/pressure slightly higher CFM fan.

Of your 2 options, I am willing to bet the Cougar will be better

Ohh and the H60 is not that thick, almost any 2 fans should be able to tackle it :)

so u think the cougar fan will be better to get and will it lower my temps a bit because i have my cpu oc to 3.4 and it summer here and my temps are 40c idle and load is 53c

53 at load is not that hot to be honest.

Does your cpu fan crank up to its full ~1700rpm speed?

If the fan is connected to your board, you should be able to use the bios to turn OFF any speed control. Some bios fan control setups also have the option to change how soon the fan ramps up.

Get HWmon and see what speed things are running at now.

what are the fan speeds. I see one at 99% is your cpu fan running full out already?

I am also noticing you have power savings turned off?

You do not always have to run off power savings. Depending on your overclock/board you can keep it on in many cases.

That would explain your higher Idle temps.

As it sits, I do not think you actually need a new fan(s) as your idles are just high from a lack of power savings. While you can get a temperature reduction, If do not think your temps are high enough to worry.

What is your clock speed anyway?

would it still be ok to get a fan controler

You can use a fan controller, but it is far more easy you just connect the fans to the power supply of a non controlled header on the board if you just want full speed.

That is one good clock for a 955 cpu. I never pushed a 955 past 1.4 volts.
