Do I need this much airflow if I'm doing push/pull?

Hey guys. I'm shopping for parts for my next build and I need some advice from the liquid cooling vets.

Here's the cooler I want to use in push pull (I'll be replacing stock fans)

I'm contemplating buying four of these fans or four of these fans (same static pressure but more airflow). I feel like if I choose four of the latter, it might be overkill.

Any thoughts?

first I wouldn't recommend going with corsair fans... The quiet edition are pathetic, no static pressure and louder than most optimized good fans. So whats the point?

The others high performance edition have good static pressure but are loud. This radiator is slim so push pull doesn't make sense as you wont see a drop in temperatures.

I would get 2 well optimized for static pressure fans..

If you still feel the need to do push pull with corsair fans which will yield no benefit go with the high performance edition and run them at 40%... Remember Push pull only makes sense with a thick radiator like the one the H80i has.

Any recommendations as to a better brand of static pressure PWM fans?
