Okay so I am in the process of building a computer case, and I currently have the skeleton made. I am going to be using 4 Alphacool NexXxoS ST30 Full Copper 360mm radiators on it, yes, 4. This case is going to be very different from just about anything I have ever seen and am very excited to keep working on it. However, I am at a loss on the fans I should use. According to a benchmarking test that I saw on these rads, they actually work very well in the 800-1200 RPM range. That being said, fans are definitely an area I am lacking in knowledge. I am looking for as silent as possible and will only be using a push setup on two of the rads and push pull on the other two.
So, any suggestions on what fans to use? Anything would be helpful because as I said, I really know very little in this regard.

Why? Or is this a 'just because you can' type of thing? Just curious. With that much rad space, you could really pick any low speed fan you want as long as it falls within the characteristics you want.

Haha why ruin the fun? I'll be posting a log this summer on it. But that's the thing, I really don't know at all. I want them to have red LEDs and i was considering the Coolermaster Sickle Flow 120s because i have used them before and they were quiet at full speed, are these a solid choice with a fan controller and dropping speed a little? Sorry if i sound naive but I honestly am in this regard...
Wow that's a very useful chart! They don't look very good at all haha. Hmm...I suppose at the worst I could add my own LEDs...how are the APs and the other top five fans on that list in regards to noise? Or at 800-1200 RPM will that really matter?
Yeah they actually do a pretty solid job, mine are the FTW Editions so they are on the 680 layout. I am just a large proprietor of overkill, and I have the ability to do it. I have the skills and tools required to fabricate any custom case designs I want and decided it was time for a long term project
