    I have the ap45's (2150rpm version of the ap15). The GT's move more air and are quiet doing it.

    For some up close noise quality comparisons take a look at THIS
    Rig2: 2*e5-26xx (16c/32t @2.4), Asus z9 pe-d8 ws, 32gb ripjawsz under water, rig3 2*e5-26xx (16c/32t @2.4), Supermicro 7047A-T 16GB 1600 ecc reg, on air, Rig4: 2*e5-26xx (16c/32t @3.1), Supermicro x9 DAi 16GB 1600 ecc reg, on air, Rig5: 2*e5-2660 (16c/32t @2.7), Supermicro x9 DRW iF 32GB 1600 ecc reg, on air

    AP15s. One of the best rad fans I have used... Just wish they were a little cheaper... I have the ap15s in my 800D build..

    My personal preference goes to the GT's. They look slick, perform great and they're quiet

    i'd go with the noctua's, but mostly because i don't like the noise the GT's make. IMO they sound like a jet engine at high RPM
