Question Adding Noctua to Corsair H60?

The Corsair H60 somtimes makes alot of noise with the main fan from what I heard from, can I simply replace it with a Noctua-NF-P12?

(Newegg.ca - Noctua NF-P12-1300 120mm CPU Cooler and Case Fan)

Will it work fine with it? And will temps be similar, lower, or higher?
Dont forget I dont plan on any extreme OCing and im just gonna use one fan for the radiator for pull in air. Thanks.

Yeah a lot of people replace the stock fans on those. The p12 is a good choice. I just put 4 in my new build, one of them on my hyper 212. They're quiet as hell, and I'm sure without checking that they move more air than those stock fans.

Probably best to stick with the stock fan, see: AnandTech - Choosing the Best 120mm Radiator Fan: Testing Eight Fans with Corsair's H80

They didn't include noctua in that test. Look at the comments; it's all people saying "Why didn't you include the p12 or f12? They're better". It does seem like the stock fans are fine though.

Agreed, the stock fan will do just fine. BTW, the Noctua fans are not known for good static pressure on radiators; that's probably why they were left out. They do make great case fans, move a lot of air very quietly.
