I am assembling my new rig, and have 5 120mm Gentle Typhoon D1225C12B5AP-15's from my last machine, and the new case came with two Fractal X2 GP-12's. New case has five 120mm fan spaces: What's the consensus on which is the better fan (air cooling), should I use my 5 Gentle Typhoons or use 3 Gentle Typhoons and 2 of the Fractals? Machine is a Ryzen 3900X with an RTX 2070 in a Fractal Define C case.

How old are your GT's? I'm not particularly impressed with the X2 GP-12's but I have not done a side-by-side comparison unfortunately, the GT's I have are all 5+ years old and the X2 GP-12's I had were brand-new, so not a fair comparison.

All the rounds I can find online lack those two fans in the same roundup... :-/

As a case fan, it really does not matter. Just pick the one that is the quietest to your ears with desired RPM. But if you have a radiator, Gentle Typhoons easily.
