120mm fans: AoC/Titan/Evercool vs. Evermax adjustable (does this run 30dB @ 90CFM)

I really cannot decide b/t the two because of the mass variations of the specs. For example, on the Evermax:

http://www.enermax.com.tw/uc-8fab.htm
http://www.directron.com/uc12fab.html

Enermax's homepage says @ 30dB it runs at 90CFM, while directron says at the max of 45 dB it runs at 80 CFM.

Almost all of the AoC/Titan/Evercool says something around the lines of 30 dB @ ~80 CFM. Since i'm on an Antec 3700AMB, i can only use 25mm thick fans, none of those 38mm thick. Between the two, which would you guys go for?

Welcome to AOA Forums, gogetadbl!

In this case, I'm inclined to believe the noise specs that Directron posts on their site. Fan manufacturer's are notorious for posting that their fans run considerably quieter than they really do.
