Default Fans seem to be running really fast

Hey guys ,
I just put this build together for my brother and I added 3 of these fans

I put them in this case - COOLER MASTER Elite 430 RC-430-KWN1 Black Steel / Plastic Computer Case

with a pheonom !! 555 cpu and a Biostar a880g+ mobo with a hyper212 cooler

I put one fan on top of the case and one on the side, and the other one I replaced the fan on the cpu cooler

when I check the fan speeds they are all running over 1900 rpm and it is just really loud , I was wondering if that is to fast for fans to run , and if there is something wrong with my setup that is making them run that fast.
or should I just get a fan controller to turn them all down, and then that will make the computer run a little quieter

Are these 3-pins or 4-pins? Do they connect to the motherboard, or on a PSU cable?

The Fan controller would be the easiest fix, yes. Did you try speedfan?

Them fans arent really case fans, 2000rpm is fast! There meant more for cpu heat sinks.

Grab one of theses or something like it: - Scythe KQ01-BK-3.5 "KAZE Q" Fan Controller

And you'll be happy.
