Corsair fans are pretty good but I also have Noctua 140mm on my 280mm radiator and on intake down at the bottom of the case. The QL120 set of 3 are on intake along the side, and are there partly for the lighting effects since they are at best okay fans. Can't really hold a candle to the Noctua, but they do look better.

I thought the ML120 Pro (non-RGB) were good fans. The A12x25's are my first time using Noctua and I was super impressed with the packaging, build quality, and just how much damn better they are at pushing air. The ML120 Pro is the last fan Corsair made that didn't sacrifice performance for RGB lighting crap, and they still aren't anywhere near these A12's I picked up. I have 3 ML120 Pro's as intakes and I will eventually replace those too once I get around to it. Bye bye Corsair!

I had the same thought going from S12 case fan Noctuas to the A12x25's. If they offered different colors and RGB they would put every other fan manufacturer out of business.

For me my temps and performance are already awesome with my current setup. It all now comes down to aesthetics, I want a clean clear build that goes with the rest of my setup.

My biggest issue is my vision for my setup is probably unrealistic. If I was to stay with Corsair, there would just not be enough room in the chassis for all the fans + Corsair Commander + RGB Pro. I would've had to go with something like the Corsair 1000D.

I could also go with the Inwin Aurora fans, they are similar to the Lian Li UNI's but I don't know enough about them. I'd need to research.

Or you can just reduce the number of fans?

No, you know as well as anyone else that any hole should be filled.
