Need Help Selecting Case Fans

I have the Corsair Air 540 case and it comes with 3 fans (1 exhaust, 2 intake). I was thinking of taking those 2 intake fans and moving them to the top for exhaust. I was then going to either buy either 2x140mm or 3x120mm for the front. I was thinking of getting these fanshttp://www.amazon.com/Noctua-NF-P12-Nine-Blade-Bearing/dp/B002CQU12C/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1421327481&sr=8-2&keywords=noctua+nf+p12&pebp=1421327479583&peasin=B002CQU12C . Would these be good enough or should I get something else? Would I still be creating positive airflow/pressure? I could really use your guys' advice

    those fans are good enough and are the favorite fans of linus due to their silent operation.
  2. Yes, when thinking about fans always remember Noctua, they're my favorite, silent and very efficient, a bit pricey but it's worth it.
  3. just throwing this out there since some of us do care about not having hideous fans.. Phanteks has some good quality fans. and they have some color options. they also have 140mm fans with 120mm mounting holes(interesting). I would check them out. They are known for there air heat sinks, just like noctua.
  4. and its funny cus linus doesnt even uses noctua in his own personal rig(silverstone TJ07).
  5. yeah but in all his videos he is like saying i love noctua because they are so silent and effective at the same time.
