A single fan can decide whether you have a silent computer or an annoying computer. Not a good idea to skimp on fans, especially when you can make a one-time investment on some high quality fans that will last you 3-11 years max (if they actually do last 100k hours) which is several builds. You want low RPM, high CFM for intake, exhaust and radiators designed for low RPMS. And static pressure for radiators, heatsinks and restrictive grills.

I'd suggest the Slipstreams, can be speed-controlled by most motherboards due to the PWM connectors so it doesn't really matter which one you get. On top of that they're known to sound very smooth. Aside from that consider push-pull for the 212+ and side-intake/exhaust for the GTX 570, might be more beneficial than simply adding MOAR case fans!.
