I haven't tried the cooler with its stock 2000 RPM fans. The specs of the fans seem pretty good, but they're white and not my thing. On a Thermaltake Core P3 they stick out like a sore thumb. When I got the cooler I immediately started with the fans you see in my signature which I moved over from my previous Thermaltake Water 3.0 360 AIO. Found 'em brand new and dirt cheap on eBay from a seller that was pulling them off new Corsair coolers. My guess is those coolers were going to a mining operation. Now I'm using 3000 RPM Noctuas @ 1500 RPM. Honestly, I'm not sure it was the wisest choice to spend money on the Noctuas when considering the performance I already had, but they do look cooler.
