I'm with Radnad, here. Personally, I can't handle the Corsair fans at full go, but I have them on an NZXT fan controller running at 40% and they are plenty quite. Not silent, but close. And with a similar rad setup to yours, Aqueous01, (1 360 and 1 240) my CPU never goes over 60C (2700k OCed to 4.8GHz) and my 2 GTX970s never go over 45C, even after hours of gaming.

Point being: don't worry about your fans, you've made a good choice as long as you're happy with the noise (or, like me, have them turned down).

As for the color, I love the clean black and white of the build now, with just the touch of blue, I'd leave it, but that's just me (maybe because mine is similar)
