    Noctua NF-A12x25 PWM are best fans. I would use them. 
     

     
    Second are CORSAIR ML120 PRO. But Noctua is better.
    They have blades from some liquid crystal polymer and density is different then other materials and they are much better quality fans and less noisy. Very heavy and nicely done fan, long time developed but most expensive computer fan.
    They could be installed even on CLC280 AIO system with 140mm adapters.

    I use the noctua fans as well, just can't beat them in my opinion.

    Can the noctua fan u posted be directly screwed onto the rad? I’m not sure what the exact measurements of supported fan size is allowed on the king radiator

    This is the newest Noctua 120mm fan you'd want to look into. 
     
    Another fan praised as one of the best rad fans are the Gentletyphoons.

    Yes they can.

    Great fans by the way. Essentially silent, even at max fan speed with a fan curve set.

    I have three for now, but I would like to buy 3 more in near feature.
    This is adapter NA-SFMA1, with him 120mm fan fit as 140mm fan. Noctua sell them in pack of two.
     

     
    First game changer after Gentle Typhoon.
    Gentle Typhoon is improved as well, 2150 RPM, black, sleeve, etc... but material is class below Noctua and people confirm that Noctua much better respond on changing speed and completely silent on 500 RPM. Many good fans have some weird noise on lower speed, I never experienced something like that because I never used them on below 1000 RPM but people say Noctua NF-A12x25 PWM is perfectly silent on any speed. That was probably extra task for engineers.

    Oh ok thank you everyone... yeah I want to max out the fans and let the rad get as much heat dissipation as possible, with just better fans how much cooler temps can I possibly might expect,

    Only 3 fans I would use are
    Noctua NF-A12x25 PWM,
    Darkside Gentle Typhoon 2150 RPM or normal 2150RPM
    CORSAIR ML120 PRO.
     
    Noctua is best and show up in moment when I prepare to buy fans.
    Bad I now need to pay full price, first 3 I bought for price of 2, best deal for PC Fans in my life.

    $10.24 Fan, 120x38mm, 116CFM   Part No.  FAN-12038HBK
    or
    $9.74 Fan, 120x25mm, 108CFM Part No.  FAN-12025HBK
    Noctua Fans are for users who want Silent Running Fans not the Best Cooling Fan.
    Case Fans are not good fans to use on Radiators.

    Noctua fans are for people that don't have to look at them. ;) 
     
    Seriously, don't go too far into the weeds debating fans. Your ambient air temp will likely make more of a difference than different fans if they're all being run near the same speed.

    Not true. I had an NZXT fan on mine running at 3000 rpm that was loud as hell, and it wasn't nearly as efficient as the Noctua 2000 rpm iPPC fan I put on there. The noctua only gets to around 70%, is barely audible over any game noise, and does a better job at keeping the radiator cool. The NZXT fan would spin all the way up to 100% and still couldn't keep up with the Noctua fan.
    Keep in mind that the NZXT fan actually came with a CPU radiator, which means it was a radiator fan versus a case fan.

    Unless you are actually measuring airflow and static pressure at a fixed RPM or noise level its anecdotal at best. Saying something is "barely audible over any game noise" is a loaded statement. How loud is the game? What's the noise floor of the room? How far is the listener from either source?

    People actually have and certain fans are an improvement verse other fans for radiators.  What you say is true that the cooler the ambient temp the better, not arguing that but proper fans can show an improvement as well, obvious ambient temp being the bigger of the two.
