***OOPS, can't edit title "Xigmatek"

I bought a Gaia SD1283 cooler for my new FX-8350. My MoBo is a Gigabyte 970A-UD3. I bought a second fan for the cooler and decided to get a better fan than the one that comes with the Xigmatek. I got a Coolmaster fan that runs up to a max of 2000 RPM (Xigmatex fan runs at 1500 max) and pushes 77CFPM as opposed to 56 for the Xigma. Also the CM fan is rated as quieter.

My question is, is there any logic as to what one to put in front? Or maybe I will just use the faster CM fan by itself. Also, in general, is putting a faster fan on a cooler like this a good idea?

Thanks,
Brad
