If im changing out my h100i v2 fans should i go with corsair sp120 pwm performance or sp120 pwm quiet edition? Can i get the pwm performance ones down to the 1450 rpm mark and then go up from there? And how would the noise be if i added 2 more for a push/pull and is it worth it?
Thanks guys

Peace, love, and chicken grease

    Why not the new Corsair ML120?
    Never felt the need for push/pull. Think it's only like a two degree difference.

    I'd recommend getting the Corsair ML120s, its a good fan with high static pressure and CFM. Noise isn't too bad either, up until 60%, then it gets noticeably louder (subjective). Pricey though.

    I've seen a couple videos testing push pull & the noise : benefit may or may not be worth it for you. 
    I have done both & there also is an issue with a weird air turbulence noise if the fans aren't pushing & pulling the same CFM. It causes the fans to rattle. I had to put them on separate fan controllers & play with the fan speeds to eliminate the noise.   
    That being said, if you're looking to upgrade the fans on an AIO cooler like the H100, you can do no better than the Noctua NF-F12-2000 or the  Noctua NF-F12-3000.
    They're a little pricey, and loud without speed control, but the performance is outstanding. I have the NF-A14-3000 on my H110 & they're sweet.

    The ML series fans from corsair are awesome, great cfm and static pressure ( 4.2 mm h2O, 75 cfm, 37dba @2400 rpm )with pwm control from 400-2400 rpm, the pro versions add changeable color corners and center mount led, i swapped my sp120's for the ML120 and the temps dropped maybe 1~2c but the loud whine of the sp120 was gone, even at 2400 rpm they are quieter than the stock sp's at 50%. the twin pack (non-changeable corners and no led ) will run around $32.00 while the pro's are $24.99 each
