Default 500 Rpm 120 Led Fan?

Ok story, HSF on core 2 duo build broken.

120 LED FAN works same slot as HSF.

120 LED only turns at 500-600 RPM, now i'm curious as to way its as slow. I am going assume the following
1. LED slows it down.
2. Size
3. Maybe Core 2 Duo fans don't spin as fast cause they don't need it...

Any more ideas.

it's a case fan and not a HSFan.
It'll be designed to run slower and quieter.
