Need some fan advice

I’m building a new rig , 8700k and I’ll OC to 5ghz.

Using my current ID cooling 240, the fan is really noisy.

So I’ll like to replace them as well as get new case fans, quietness is key, RGB is secondary.

What would you guys suggest for replacement radiator fans as well as case fans with quietness being key and still push decent air

The GT AP 15 is high static pressure, best for radiators right? As case fans is it still suitable? Also,which shop carries em ah

Keen to know which local shop carry GT.

Placed an order for the GT at Lazada the other day but it was cancelled, cited OOS.

Some recommended Corsair ML but it doesn’t has the 80mm.

The newest Noctua NF-A12x25.

https://noctua.at/en/products/fan/nf-a12x25-pwm

It is insanely good and you don't need RGB when it is already poop brown.

I don't see any local shop selling it yet so might have to order from online.

Another fantastic choice is EK Vardar 120mm fans

The most balanced fan. Airflow is okay, static pressure is good too. No problem whatsoever. If you have a restricted intake (like NZXT S340 or Phanteks P300/P400), static pressure do a better job to bring air in.

I typically get them from Doraemon (t258jgn is his forum name) from Carousell.

You can try ask him see if he still have stock. He's a legit seller, quite well known here.

Redux edition is bare fan only. No vibration pads or other accessories. Only 4 normal screws and fan only.

Is good buy if your case can filter out sound / vibration and you have the various mounting screws/kits available.
