Antec Kühler 620 fan replacement

Hello every one, I recently got myself an Antec Kühler 620, I am glad with the result and it cools my PC way better than the (even more noisy) CPU fan.
However the sound of the stock fan on it, is still quite noisy and since it is sitting next to me on the table, I would like to change this.
I have looked around this, and some other forums and decided to go with a Akasa Apache Super Silent PWM fan, as that would also allow me to control the fan speed.

Is this fan (since most these threads were outdated), still a good choice? Or is there a better option for me to go with?

Ofcourse I choose quality over price, but there is a limit :p 

Thank-you in advance.

I looked at the reviews and everyone said it was loud above 1200 rpm?


I have it, and I have never seen it get that high in the RPMs it does such a good job. It might be that it get's lod at those rpms, but, as I said, even stressing my system, I have never seen the rpms spike to max levels.
