What do you mean by "best"? "Best" would be like a 3-4k RPM delta or san ace. Best noise/airflow is either Scythe SFLEX or Noiseblocker fans.

Scythe S-Flex or Gentle Typhoon would be my choice. S-Flex for maximum performance, GT for best noise/airflow ratio.

Scythe S-Flex are good high static pressure fans and they do a good choice for its price.

But when those S-Flex are undervolt they tend to make clicking noises.

just go for the S-Flex 1600RPM one. rated at 63CFM and 28DBA, that should be good enough for average overclockers

I haven't come across that. But yeah the 1600rpm one is plenty.

I've never had any problems undervolting. I used two 1600RPM ones in my HTPC, one at 7V constant and the other variable depending on CPU speed and they both sounded amazing.
