Nothing, stop buying (fans in this case) according to brand and start buying according to actual, measurable specs.
Your sole worry right now is replacing these fans with something better.
Somewhere in there lies also the notion that your being active here, does -or should i say should- entail a certain level of awareness. Or lacking that, the incentive to search through our own threads. Same questions, asked time and time again.
Since i'm wasting my time posting however,

At high enough speeds and with good enough fans, there is a very slight gain if
noise isn't a concern.
Running at 2300ish RPM (as near accurate as an Aquaero 6XT can make it) two TY-143 fans versus three makes for a 1,5-1,7 Celsius average
Delta drop for me. I should say a clean two degrees here, but i'm being fair and including a one-off worse that i cannot replicate so should exclude, but hey, let's keep it in and bring it down to 1,7 ish.
22 degrees steady ambient (no, not like 'Morans Nexus' steady "ambient", i mean really steady and really ambient)
Steady, fixed locations, no drafts, no variations.
3900X running at a steady 1.42 core, 1.25 SoC, all cores, SMT on, manual OC.
Running latest Prime without AVX loads. Multiple runs, temps measured after 40min mark.
Variance being the kind of FFTs run.
Temps measured old school, not through 'HWiNFO'.
All temps measured inside a Caselabs S8.
Intake was four 120mm iPPC industrials, running at 2400 each, through a 15% impedance custom-made air filter. No outtake fan was used.
Margin of error is .5 Celsius. Air conditioner, digital thermometer and probes are highest quality. Japan
* i said 3900XT in the beginning, lol.. wishful thinking ^^
** am getting one when they come out, so Freudian slip am guessing.
