I would like to see all the above features. i.e. Led fan, very quite, high air flow, and long life. :D

Definitely high CFM and high static pressure. 120mm x 38mm fans offer that, but I can't fit them due to the size of my RAM heat sinks :(

Having LEDs would be nice too. I say the CM R4 series fans come close to all of these. They're quiet, move a lot of air, have LEDs, but static pressure isn't the best.

There really isn't the holy trinity fan yet from any manufacturer with high cfm(above 75CFM), high airpressure (above 3mmH2O) and dBA (<26). Many people don't understand static pressure, and why that spec is very important for CPU coolers.
