I want to switch out the two fans in the radiator for my liquid cooler, Corsair H100 Link below.

With 2 of this green Apevia fans I like, fits the theme for my case very nicely. Link below.

But my worry is when switching the fans I am not sure if the new fans are as good, or capable of the same RPM's as the original fans. The Corsair H100 has three settings that speed the fans up or down, so there isn't a standard RPM rating on the fans that come with it that I can tell. I am not sure if the Apevia fans will be able to go up to the 2500 RPM's. If anyone has any thoughts or experience with this I would love to hear your opinion.

Any help is much appreciated.

When considering buying new fans for radiators, it's important to take into consideration the static pressure more than anything.

I'm not too sure how the Apevia fans will perform, but it may be better to take a look at fans such as Noctua NF-F12's, Corsair SP series, or Cougar Vortex fans.

On a side note, I fully understand your gripe about matching colorrs.

LED fans are always a nice touch for a pc case. The fan you are looking at is a good one and can probably work just fine with the H100. The H100 changes the fan speed by lowering and raising the amount of power going to the fans so you can use just about any fan you want as long as it is the right size. However, to make sure that you don't lose any performance you should look into finding some led fans that run about 1850 rpm(which is about the same speed as the fans that come with it)
