I'd go with coooler master, I used some of their fans and they have never failed me.

I hate to say it, but a fan is a fan. Just look at airflow at spin rate efficiencies and go off of that. All I use anymore are Rosewill fans, which are on the cheaper end, very efficient and quiet, last as long as anything else I use. Only exception I have to that is the two Vantec Tornadoes I bought 7 years ago... still run like a champ (and after 7 years pretty much EVERYTHING is dead), but they are so loud I only use them in my cabinet to knock the sound level down.

I'm using a pair of coolermaster high pressure fans on mine in push-pull configuration. Kind of need high static air pressure (as opposed to high CFM) when dealing with a double-thick core-style radiator like the on in the H70.
