Thermaltake ring 14 SP fans to replace Corsair H110i GTX or Kraken X61??

I really love these thermaltake fans in either blue or white LED: https://pcpartpicker.com/part/thermaltake-case-fan-clf039pl14wta

Would I lose any performance, or would they perform well as replacement fans for the Corsair H110i GTX or Kraken X61? They would aesthetically complement my build very well and look to be pretty quiet. I like the looks of the Corsair H110i GTX better, but have read it is loud. If I were to get one of these two coolers without replacing fans it would be the Kraken X61 because it is quieter (from what I have read), but if these fans would work as replacement fans they would look better and perform quieter than either of these two coolers with stock fans. I will be overclocking a i7 6700k inside of a NZXT H440 case (good enough airflow but not the best). Thanks for your input!

you would loose performance as those fans only have 1.58 static pressure. Take for example the ones on the kraken X61 have 1.97 of static pressure and the ones on the corsair have 3.99 of static pressure. You can imagine how loud corsair fans can be if they produce so much static pressure.

If you want a fan pleasing to the eye you can get the aerocool DS which produce 1.98 of static pressure.

another option would be the noctua 140mm industrial 2000 PWM

Hmm. I like the look of the DS fans, but have not read anything about them being used for radiators. I thought they are more of an airflow fan?

they do produce a good amount of static pressure which is the most important factor with fans for rads.

the other option is the noctua which produce 2.08 of static pressure

or the industrial version which produce 4.08 of static pressure. The would be quieter than the corsair but will still be loud.
