If you've decided that you want to replace the stock red 200mm fans with blue ones of the same size then your options are limited.

If you've got a soldering iron, and some skills, I think the best approach is to just replace the leds:

Your advantage here is that you get to keep your LED button on/off function for the front fan. As far as I know, replacing the front fan with the coolermaster you listed above your Fan Led button would be non-functional due to the wiring. With that said, its no big deal and the easier way to go about it.

Also, you can choose the slightly less expensive http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... or http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
200mm fan led solder
basically you've got 2 choices

Yes they will work fine,you'll lose on/off like smamic82 mentions.
The mounting holes line up but the screws that come with the Megaflow 200 R4 don't work in a HAFX re-use the HafX fan screws.
