Thermaltake Water 3.0 Extreme fan replacement

Hey guys c:

About to buy a Thermaltake Water 3.0 Extreme water cooler for my i5 4670k, and I've read a lot of reviews that say the fans are like an RC plane taking off. Like other water coolers, are you able to replace the fans on this cooler? If so, even LED's? I'm going for a black/blue colour theme and having LED's on the cooler would be pretty cool, but then again I could just put noctua's on it then put blue LED strips...

But yeah are the fans replaceable?

Cheers

Yes the fans are replaceable. I'd try the stock ones first then replace it if it really is too loud.

I have the Extreme 2.0, the fans are fine at low speeds with only a slight buzzing sound. I ended up replacing them with Corsair SP120 HP's.
