looking at buying new fans. heres what they are... recommendations?

so... iv been wanting to re modernize my computer for a while. its not praticularly out of date and can play alot of Graphics intense games just fine, but i have been wanting to make it significantly better and turn my current parts into a dedicated server. that being said, my first step has been to replace stock fans and cooling with better ones. i was looking at this

Newegg.com - COUGAR CF-V14S Vortex Hyper-Spin 150,000 Hours 14CM Silent Cooling Fan

and

Newegg.com - CORSAIR H100 (CWCH100) Extreme Performance Liquid CPU Cooler

if anyone would suggest somthing else or would like to tell me somthing about what im purchasing i might not know, id appreciate it. as for recommendations color does matter lol. its one reason i liked these fans

I'd stay away from the Cougar... never heard of them! Take a look here if you want quiet...

The corsair h100 is killer!

im not sure what that link was to, but thanks forthe advice on cougar, but now i have to ask, what should i look into. i like xigmatek, but i could care less for the white LEDs. i like solid orange blades (ie not clear) if LEDs than Redish orange or orange. and preferably over 1000 RPM quieter is better. i need 120mm and 140mm and possibly 230mm

I agree with Darryl, I've never heard of Cougar, but the H100 is a good cooler. I would check the specs and make sure it will fit your case. As I understand, it needs 2 120mm fan mounts, side by side as you would find on the top of many cases.

went to there website, they do have some more, but the prices get a little "pricey!" getting to $30 for the 120 fan, ty for telling me about it, but i think ill just keep it in mind for another build, this time i think i can sacrifice SOME quality for asthetics. like bfore. if anyone knows of any orange 140mm fans 120mm fans and 230mm fans, preferably all from the same brand, in orange, and with orange, red, or even NO LEDs. i could mod the xigmatec, white to orange LEDs, but i have no clue how or where to get orange LEDs on there own on short notice for cheap
