Yea 4 fans would be relatively louder but 4 fans are able to push more fans which allows me to clock them at a lower RPM. Lower RPM = less loud. Just take note that only 4pin pwm fans allow adjusting fan speeds through the cpu fan header.
Thanks again for your fantastic input! Yeah I didn't think about the fact that if I had more fans, i could lower the RPM.

However, my CPU and GPU will be watercooled so I"m assuming 2 fans is still enough? I was actually thinking that if I watercooled my CPU and GPU, I can even lower the fan RPM. Or is 4 fans still the better option?
