    was thinking maybe sanyo denki 120mm pwm fans - would be pushing though fins spaced 1cm apart so static pressure probably not that important. Any suggestions?

    Arctic Cooling F12's are good. I have a pair of standard and a pair of PWM ones and they still shift a decent amount of air even when turned down to 600rpm. Pretty quiet at full speed and they look nice in the black frame/white blades colour scheme.

    +1 for the Arctic F12's, got two of the PWM models on a TRUE here, very quiet even at ful speed. Nice thing to is that theyre extremely cheap.

    im also looking at pwm fans to replace my zalmon fitted to the heatsink of cnps9500. ive looked hard at the 92mm fans and the arctic's look very good - for the rpm/noise they seem to move a little more air (from the data ive seen) also it appears you can attach several together in series??

    next best seems tobe the scythe kama.

    i already use a sharkoon which is great fan (not pwm) and a noctura.
