Default S-FLEX vs Slip-Stream vs ?? (for TRUE)

Why are the Scythe S-FLEX fans (more specifically the SFF21F) more reccomended than the Scythe Slip-Stream fans for the TRUE? Seems like the Slip-Stream ones offer better performance:noise ratio than the S-FLEX ones, and they're a bit cheaper...

Are there any other nice fans that'd nicely compliment a TRUE(moreso than the Scythe ones - and at a competitive price)? Saw a post yesterday on here about a new Noctua fan.

It's specifically designed to create higher air pressure to force it through fins in radiators and heatsinks...and is also designed to be very quiet.

This is the fan I am using on my TRUE atm. I am running 55-59c on my Q6600 @ 1.5v at 3.6 atm. My case fans (Thermaltake A2018 120mm) are louder than the Cool Jag. I picked it for the air flow and the 4 pin PWM.

New Noctua NF-P12 ! Just look at it...it's actually been engineered...it's not just your bog standard bladed thingy strapped on a motor. THe only downside is the price.
