I use Cooler Master LED fans. They spin fast at 2000rpm (better cooling), have cool LEDs and don't cost as much so you can buy more of them
If this build is geared for gaming then it's a bunch of poor decision parts. Again, if it isn't geared for multi-threaded still poor decision and things need to be changed. Ask the purpose first, so you can steer in the right direction.
Next, like I said before RPM does not equal cooling capacity. At 1500RPM that fan does 70CFM. That is excellent
for 17 bucks. Not only that, it is hydro-bearing. It will last a very long time if taken care of. I'm talking over 10 years constant use and no squeak.
Remember, a fans measurement of air cooling is how much flow it has which is CFM. Most fans have to spin around 2500RPM to push 70CFM to give you an idea. Noctua fans do around 54-60 at 1200RPM with a high constant static pressure which is great for CPU cooling.
