    I was under the impression that because of the close fin spacing of the 800 and 900, you need a higher pressure. To get a higher pressure, you need high RPM's, and 120 mm fans just aren't that fast.

    your correct but there are 2 mitigating curcumstances.
    1 im not looking for exteme performance and
    2 a shroud will help create some presure due o total volume being compacted. obviously it wont be a huge amount but some. basicaly im looking for good not great performance from a quieter 120mm fan
