Just the fans man, High flow quiet 120mm?

The title says it all, I have been using CM sickle flow fans for quite a while now and they are rated average for cooling. What I really need is a fan that can push more than the 35CFM at 1900 rpms the Sickle flow does (yeah yeah its rated 69 at 2000 but skineelabs testing says otherwise)

What are my actual options here. I have read so many reviews I'm seeing TDP numbers in my sleep help me out.

My degree of difficulty is I want a fan thats not a delta/panaflo that is QUIET when turned down to idle speeds. My sickleflows tend to make an odd buzz sound at idle so I run them ~800rpms on my fanbus and it keeps everything cool enough on air I want to be able to do this with water.

NZXT Sentry fanbus

This thing uses the 3 pin connectors, do you think the molex fans will pull too much power off that bus to burn it out? Yeah i know I could check the current draw versus the bus tolerance but im lazy and youre right there lol.

i bought some scythe gentle typhoons and they're quite awesome

http://www.amazon.com/Scythe-Gentle-.../dp/B001Q6RUVO

1850 rpm might be a little noisy for some people but that's what i use as a CPU fan on a noctura NH-L12 (bottom mount, low profile configuration) and i haven't had any issues with it.

Yes, but they are great with a fan controller. Static pressure is very good too making it ideal for heatsinks and radiators.

That's something I needed to know PMP. Static pressure is acceptable with my fans but not good enough in my opinion.

EDIT: Ordered 4 of the Corsair SP120mm fans, and a new motherboard... My USB subsystem has been crashing on me and decided if I'm going to WC it's not going to be a budget board.
